America in Uniform

Eager to speak military English the way the pros do? Then remember this simple rule — the most basic word comes first. For example: Trousers, Green, Male; Truck, Cargo, 4×4. On a recent trip to the Air Force Academy commissary, I saw, written on the side of a large carton, yet another example: Melon, Water.
