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

"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.
Zombie personal hygeine is sorely lacking, and therefore Mother would never approve of Zombies.

5 pages and no one's posted M.C.L.M.M.
then again, ZS doesn't have as many large egos, like some of the other gun/LEO/merc./mil. forums do. :lol:
