Hooah (hü-ä or who-ah) is a U.S. Military slang term. It is used by US Army soldiers "Referring to or meaning anything and everything except no". It can also be a type of battle cry. The word's etymology is unclear, but one possible origin is that it is based on the acronym HUA, meaning "heard, understood, acknowledged". A joking etymology for this is also "Head Up Ass" so that Hua can have a double meaning, either a motivational one ("Hua, Sir, we'll take that hill") or else when told something that one couldn't possibly believe, they answer sarcastically with "Hua", knowing the other derivation
FIDO(fi·doe), F*ck it Drive on!
Semper fidelis(sem·per fi·de·lis), a Latin motto meaning "Always faithful".

What is the Boxer battle cry for us non military guys cause we sure can't say Hooah out of respect for all the real veterans...........I like the dog bark, but somebody from Omega Psi Phi might kick my brains out.
