Pretty much, I have only heard it used a few times but it pretty much just means a grunt deployed to the desert.

If they aren't pronounceable words, then technicaly speaking they aren't acronyms...they're initialisims, just to pick nits. Not much of a difference admittedly, but I felt persnickity today :lol:
"While the word abbreviation refers to any shortened form of a word or a phrase, some have used initialism or alphabetism to refer to an abbreviation formed simply from a string of initials. In 1943, Bell Laboratories coined the term acronym as the name for a word (such as SONAR) created from the first letters of each word in a series of words (such as SOund Navigation And Ranging).[1] The terms initialism and alphabetism are neither widely used nor widely known. The term acronym is widely used to describe any abbreviation formed from initial letters.[2]

Most dictionaries define acronym to mean "a word" in its original sense,[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] while some include a secondary indication of usage, attributing to acronym the same meaning as that of initialism.[11][12][13] According to the primary definition found in most dictionaries, examples of acronyms would include NATO (pronounced /ˈneɪtoʊ/), scuba (/ˈskuːbə/, self-contained underwater breathing apparatus), and radar (/ˈreɪdɑr/, radio detection and ranging), while examples of simple abbreviations (initialisms) would include FBI (/ˌɛfˌbiːˈaɪ/) and HTML (/ˌeɪtʃˌtiːˌɛmˈɛl/).[7][12][14]

So the POS (piece of sh**) acronym was never addressed from previous page...and this forum is in FRF tonight (F***ing rare form).
My most often used is that something is TDB (too damn bad).
That one fits right in with conversation, and saves on texting.
