    What does the word "Yut" mean... does it stand for something? is it a navy term? I could be completely out of the ballpark so unless it actually does mean something, feel free to throw some ideas out there...

    I don't know the term "Yut", but you may be thinking of "Yuc". A Yuc is a sophomore at the USMA, and the acronym stands for Youngest Upperclassman. It is the equivalent of a Youngster at USNA. I wouldn't consider Yuc nor Youngster to be derogatory.

    I believe it is just a motivational phrase, similar to, "oorah!"

    It's definitely a word only Marines use. Yut & oorah are similar, but where oorah is "motivational", yut is often ironic (according to my plebe-year Marine prof).

    At The Citadel, a "Yut" is referred to as a cadet who is a contracted Marine Corps cadet, or one who is pursuing a USMC commission. It's not really derogatory, but it pokes fun at the Marine's perpetual motivation.
