I get it, BTW. Learn something new every day.
I use the word "don" and I'm not military. It's a perfectly good word. Why is it considered so strange?
it may be a matter of location--whether you're in the east or the west US. The east tends to have and use a larger vocabulary. The west tends to use a smaller one. also perhaps level of audience. not something the hoi polloi would use normally, again, from a westerner's perspective. Military use, well, things *are* driven from top down there..., Don, doff, and now sodomy and bestiality.
Simpletons of the world west, unite!
Yo. I've got a tremendous vocabulary. I just think it's an old-fashioned word, that's all. Like when the phone book uses the word "apparel" for clothes.
This is quite likely, as most often, in the military, the words are only used when referencing directions from manuals, manuals that are quite old and have only been updated to include new nomenclature for equipment and such. This would probably explain the use of this language by police, old and young, as well.
Separate names with a comma.
