WikiLeaks: Military Dictionary

“The Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms is a compendium of terminology used by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). The Wikileaks edition corresponds to the September 17, 2007 US DoD edition. It sets forth standard US military and associated terminology to encompass the joint activity of the Armed Forces of the United States in both US joint and allied joint operations, as well as to encompass the DoD as a whole. These military and associated terms, together with their definitions, constitute approved DOD terminology for general use by all components of the Department of Defense. The Secretary of Defense, by DoD Directive 5025.12, 23 August 1989, Standardization of Military and Associated Terminology, has directed its use throughout the Department of Defense to ensure standardization of military and associated terminology.
