It makes perfect sense doesn't it? I haven't used these in a while. More recently I have used Jack, Mike, Sam, Will, Zoro...

While different all these systems are designed to use simple and distinctive syllables to communicate without error in environments with a high level of signal noise or actual noise. You will rarely find a use for this but universal understanding can help with communication in vital situations which you may never encounter. It is best to know it just in case.

After Juliett my brain went limp. I should know after all this time I've spent around military codes. It's useful to know, but it isn't one of the things you will have to one day worry about (most likely).

I know it, mostly because I'm an amateur radio operator (ham).

It irritates me a little when people make up their own words, especially when they use a word that's a bit nebulous.

I got a history with FPS games and therefore I knew about A, B, C, D, E and F... However I didn't know about the rest.

Ex-military at 19? Does your country allow to join at an earlier age? Im not quite familiar with the policies and workings of foreign militaries.

But back on topic, I'm an A-10 Crew Chief in the US Air Force, so even though I'm military I'm not quite familiar with the NATO alphabet because my job doesn't involve anything with it.

Yes i joined the infantry at the age of 16 and left at the age of 18 since my country decided they were spending too much on defense and thought it would be a good idea to dismiss/fire 20.000 men.

You can start your military education at the age of 16 here but you cant be deployed untill you are 18.

Ah, I see now. Hah learn something new everyday. Well, I hope the military did well for you as it is for me. It's a pretty decent life. Hats off to you for serving.

I did memorize them back when I was younger, for kicks. The corresponding flags too, but I don't really remember those anymore.
