Military Phonetic AlphabetThe Phonetic Alphabet is used by the military as a way to share letters over audio communication without confusion.

Why Learn? So you don't look like a complete moron improvising your own "phonetic alphabet" in front of people who actually know the real thing. (Speaking from personal experience. - Chris)


It's embarrassing when you make up your own phonetics and get busted by someone who actually knows them. So we recommend committing these to memory...for your own sake!

"Now it's possible while communicating a name or address to someone on the phone, you can use the phonetic alphabet. Being Australian, my accent was very strong when I first came to the USA and this alphabet helped me out with people that could ot undferstand me. So next time you're trying to spell something over the phone, try this alphabet. I'm sure it will help you out." - Advice from Patrick Donaldson - Australian Native, Current Male Military Spouse

New Resource for Male Military Spouses!

How many of you guys have had the opportunity to listen to Dave Etter's blog talk radio show?  If not, well, it's a work in progress and that lack of show polish is just the way he wants it.  Dave is retired from the Navy and currently married to an Army medic, he has also volunteered as a Family Readiness Group Leader while stationed at Ft Campbell.  So to say Dave (aka “Old Fart”) is an opinionated straight-shooter who often times fires “from the hip” and checks his facts later would be an accurate statement.  I can joke about him because I know he can take it, hell, many times he insists on it!
