    I live in a military town, so I can figure out some of these acronyms used on here, but what are DS and DD? I'm guessing son and daughter, but what is the first D? Sorry to sound dumb - I'm brand new to this forum and trying to learn.

    I'm new here too. I spent 45 minutes googling BWE (BFE) and TWE yesterday :) Big or Thin White Envelope = yes/no. Felt like such a dope!

    Big fat envelope (appointment) and thin white envelope (you were not chosen). The acronym list posted above is very helpful. The academies enjoy their alphabet soup.

    Thanks, everyone! I guess I'm not the only one. :)

    Not just the academies with the acronyms!! spent two days with my two pilots and half of what they said required a dictionary.

    Get to know your acronyms - PRINT THE LIST and post it near where you access SAF. Save you a lot of head scratching.

    I know, it was my weak attempt at a joke. At least I make myself laugh
