what does the green OP mean or when referring to someone? I do not see an acronym nor have I managed to work that one out...
Original Poster. Common Internet forum usage, not a uniquely military term.

If it’s green, they are logged in at that moment.

If you do @username in the text of your post, you ensure username is notified about it - doesn’t matter if they are OP, a poster in the thread of interest, or not. It flags it for their attention.
Example... @jaglvr

OP means original poster.

It is not a military acronym. It is the person who initiated a thread in a forum.

Can add:

AMS - Academy of Military Science (previous specialized ANG-only Officer Training School, replaced by TFOT around 2014. Occasionally used interchangeably with OTS or TFOT)

TFOT - Total Force Officer Training (USAF unified line officer training program for ANG, AF Reserves, and USAF-AD, falls under OTS at Maxwell)

COT - Commissioned Officer Training (USAF unified non-line officer training for ANG, AF Reserves, and USAF-AD, falls under OTS at Maxwell)

RCOT - Reserve Commissioned Officer Training (USAF reserve-only, non-line officer training for specifically identified career fields in the AF Reserve Component designated as hard-to-fill. Most non-line officers will go through COT, not RCOT).

AC - Active Component (Title 10 Active Duty force)

RC - Reserve Component (Reserve, National Guard, Civil Air Patrol, and other Auxiliaries)

T10 - Title 10 (aka federally-funded, federally-controlled military equipment and personnel)

T32 - Title 32 (aka federally-funded, state-controlled ANG/ARNG equipment and personnel)

SAD - State Active Duty (state-funded, state-controlled ANG/ARNG equipment)

T5 - Title 5 (federal DoD civilians)

RED HORSE - Air Force Expeditionary Civil Engineering Forces

PRIME BEEF - Air Force Primary Civil Engineer Forces

S-Team - Air Force Reserve Professional Engineering Staff Augmentation Team (only in ANG/Reserves)

USACE - US Army Corps of Engineers

Seabee/CB - Navy Construction Battalion (Navy Civil Engineers)

AFCEC - Air Force Civil Engineer Center

AFIT - Air Force Institute of Technology

I've seen these last engineering-specific ones come up in recent threads, as a lot apply to AFROTC technical degree applicants (a bunch of whom are pursuing engineering degrees)

Also, may want to add a note to "CO" that AF doesn't use this term. It is just "Commander" or "Flight/Squadron/Group/Wing Commander"

Can we please add ROO to the acronym list? I have a general idea what it is but don't know what it stands for. Thank you.

HHoG = "Holy House of Gains"

AKA Macdonough ("MacD") Hall gymnasium weight room. ;)

For that matter "MacD" should be on the list.
