Army Alphabet

In the Army, they have their own set of ABC’s so there’s never any confusion between a “b” and a “d” for instance. Between the alphabet, the new way to tell time and all of the acronyms, pretty soon no one in the civilian world will be able to understand any thing you say.

As an Army wife, when you are telling someone your husband is in D Company, you would say he is in Delta Company. You will be using these yourself in no time at all.

The alphabet is below. Learn it and you can impress your Army soldier with your knowledge.

A: Alpha
B: Bravo
C: Charlie
D: Delta
E: Echo
F: Foxtrot
G: Golf
H: Hotel
I: India
J: Juliette
K: Kilo
L: Lima

M: Mike
N: November
O: Oscar
P: Papa
Q: Quebec
R: Romeo
S: Sierra
T: Tango
U: Uniform
V: Victor
W: Whiskey
X: X-ray
Y: Yankee
Z: Zulu

If your Army soldier is anything like mine, he’ll correct you if you’re using another term for the letter of the alphabet. For instance, I used to say “b as in boy” to which my husband would quickly respond “Don’t you mean bravo?” Sure honey, shall I salute you now too? *smile*
