    This one is I believe unique to the P-3 Community: TACCO = Tactical Coordinator

    The TACCO is the senior NFO on the aircraft. They are basically the ones who "run the mission". They are the ones who deploy the weapons, etc. (granted the pilots can push the "fire" button as well)

    Came across this today. Doesn't have CFA [or at least the Service academy definition, CFA also stands for Committee on Food Aid Policies and Programmes (UN)] but for those of you like me, new to the DoD and the amazing world of acronyms, this is a pretty helpful little tool :thumb:

    Oops, I meant to ask about "IC" ?

    Recruited athletes have a different protocol. If you are an IC, you should talk to your coach and he/she can tell you where you’re at.

    IC means "Inter-collegiate" and refers to student-athletes.

    Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency.

    If you can't find it in the acronym list Google is always worth a try.

    Thanks, Kinnem :thumb:. Is CULP something Marines would do or is it another branch?

    Dont know the acronym ROO.

    I checked the acronym list and it was no where to be found. Please enlighten me. I believe Recruit Orientation Officer possibly? Does each school or battalion have one?

    Whoa, those words. I am so going to be out of my element at West Point. I hadn't even heard the ones that some people consider normal language until I was 8. I didn't here these until I was way into middle school. #homeschooledpastor'sdaughter who hasn't gone to much stuff that isn't christian.

    Thanks though. I guess I need to know these, even if I would NEVER use them.
