Operation What?

Allow me to rant for a minute – what ever happened to the cryptic and ominous names given to operations in which our military forces were engaged?  Operation Overlord, Rolling Thunder, Mongoose, Tomahawk, Phoenix, and Arc Light are a few which come to mind.  Forgive me for being shallow, and I mean absolutely no offense to our wonderful soldiers serving overseas today, but I would be much more enthusiastic participating in an operation given a cool name worthy of the effort put forth in preparing for the engagement rather than the PC, media-oriented slogans we hear today (Enduring Freedom, Desert Shield, Uphold Democracy, etc).  Of course, I don’t know what I am talking about – just an opinion from a little girl with too much time on her hands!

    i am a retired usaf pilot, officer and gentleman (not necessarily in that order…lol) and i have participated in many military campaigns…we sill use the names but don’t widely publicize them…some slip out into the mainstream media though…if i told you some of the names, i would have to find some way to silence you! 😉

      As long as they are cool names, they’d be worth the silencing! Thanks for all the comments, Woody. Keep them coming!

    *giggles* omg Nikki, i so agree. i always loved hearing the cool names of military operations. i think they use the names nowadays is so they dont sound so violent and promoting “peace”. i think its silly, but i think that is why they do it.
