    We use the military one.....

          We use yellow and baker in that sequence - I used young and boy one night (previous assignment flashback). My partner nearly choked.

            We use alpha bravo charlie. Every now and then I shoot a different word in there (Ocean instead of Oscar, Joker instead of Juliet)... and I'm pretty sure I once said Helo (as in the game... not sure why considering I've never played it) instead of Hotel.

                            I've always thought it'd be funny to run something phonetically over the air like,

                            "S - Tsunami, P - Pseudo, F - Phenomena," and then throw out a couple, "C - Moses, Y - Cockatoo" and see which letters they actually use.

                            But we use the Adam, Boy, Charles version.
                            "The majority of people are sheep. Wolves prey on the sheep. You are the sheepdog. The sheep pretend the wolf will never come, but the sheepdog lives for that day. " -Lt. Col. Grossman

                            "We are righteous under the law, and we are righteous under God!" -Chief T. Fleming
