GREAT thread, obaf!!! It's so true, we really need to be thanking the men and women of the armed forces for all that they have done, and continue. Thank you to the veterans who went and fought the wars that we couldn't do.

The United State Marine Corp has Ooh-rah like the army's Hooah but better. The army is for candy-asses.

Oh right. We never did the whole hoorah or ohh rah thing in the Royal Marines in fact I don't think it's something anyone in the British army did or does.

I believe that the British had a battle cry during WWII. It was Hurrah and I think that the USMC's Ooh-rah cam from the Brit's Hurrah

Yeah probably I knnow that more recently we tend to scream the hurrah may have worked in WW2 but teh screamin seems to be more affective. A little before my time but my CO once told me that when the battle for Goosegreen in the Falklands commenced it was the dead of night and the screaming of the British soldiers scared the Argies sh*tless morale of the story win the phsycological battle and you are half way there.
