  • All that fancy language (although I've never heard "deactivate") is just like the jargon in any group. People give fancy names to really simple things to make themselves sound better. Along with that, the stupidest words become popular because some senior sergeant or officer likes it. It starts showing up everywhere. Memes aren't just for the internet. :)

    Not only that, soldiers are much more media savvy nowadays, so the stuff they say to reporters is a lot different than what they say to each other. The industrial people are much more hip to the marketing bullshit.
