Military Definitions - U

A to Z Blogging Challenge.  My topic is MILITARY DEFINITIONS.
U – Uniform
morse code – dot dot dash
Underwater demolition — the destruction of underwater obstacles such as mines.

Uniformed services — the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Public Health Services.

United States Armed Forces — used collectively to refer to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

Unlimited war — Not to be used. Use general war.  For some reason, I like that “unlimited war” is a term we aren't supposed to use.

  1. 'Unlimited war' seems like an awful notion! Those two words shouldn't go together.

    1. Yep. I was surprised to see it listed on one of my military definition pages, but glad it's "not to be used."

  3. I'm sorry I'm behind on blog hopping. These are always interesting.

    Well, we had unlimited war under Sherman and Sheridan, but thankfully, those days are behind us.

  4. Uniformed services. Are there casual services, or non-uniformed services? What about Uninformed services? Amazing what an extra "n" can do... ;)

  5. I hear ya on the late editorial comment. So glad we're not supposed to use the term "unlimited war." That's just got negative connotations surrounding it from every side. (which I guess is redundant because you can't surround something from one or two sides, can you?)
