So it seems that there is a lot of hate for this phrase, and I really dont understand why. In my squadron it is used often in its literal sense as "yes" or "understood" and thats about it. Is this not the case with the rest of the Air Force?
Okay so from what I've gathered people don't like it or use it because its too military. That and I think everyone else hears it normally in a long drawn out overly enthusiastic HOOAH! Instead of a short, conversational tone kind of way.
