From abort and azimuth to zero point and ZULU time, this is the comprehensive standardized dictionary of military and associated terminology compiled for general use by the United States government. It’s nearly 800 pages of words, phrases, names, and acronyms that for many can seem like a foreign language. For the 1.3 million men and women on active duty with the U.S. military and the 1.1 million in the National Guard and Reserve forces, for government workers and contractors working the Department of Defense, it is a vital resource. For anyone with an interest in all things military, this is a fascinating read.
The Department of Defense oversees the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force
