We often talk acout how prevalent acronyms are in the military. However, I just learned that we have been misspelling the word all this time. This is an actual picture I took at a required course I attended in Harrisburg this week, which is PA's capital. As a taxpayer, I want my money back...

Um, was this is PA course, or… because, as a PA tax payer, I too want my taxes back if this comes from the PA government! I am not a great speller (unless they are chemical terms…) but… wow!
 
Understandable. This is from a State whose voters re-elected representative Anthony DeLuca after he had died a month before the election.
They aren't splitting atoms there. :p

If you don't live in the 32nd District you're probably okay to operate machinery, though.

If you want to pick nits, those aren't TLA (three letter acronyms) either, they are initializations.
 
Confession: I always say it as "an acronym" pronounced as one word; probably due to my New York accent. (Can't be my fault);)
