Military Slang from the current Iraqi war

April 2007

Military Slang from the current Iraqi war:

  • Bohica: Bend Over, Here It Comes Again
  • Christians in Action: Slang for Central Intelligence Agency
  • Dome of obedience: Slang for a military helmet. Also called a ‘brain bucket' or ‘skid lid.'
  • Speed bumps: A tanker's derogatory term for infantry soldiers

More here. I like ‘Dome of obedience.'

Tim B commented:

But Christians in Action is just plain terrifying!

wow... im writing a zombie novel and the main character is a headstrong seargent that needs to keep his head on a swivel and his brains in his head. I think i might use "brain bucket" just for the laughs.
