What does Bravo Zulu mean

This one of the alert calls which as a Weapons Fire Control Technicn we used at times. = Zulu 6 Golf = A Mach 1 or better aircraft was closing on the ship @ 50 ft above the sea {which means that tracking it was lost in the sea return! We received some occasionally - it was a sobering realization!)

Common military phonetic alphabet phrases include:

Which is what are used at sea both as both flags and Lights!

Bravo Zulu: Good job. The term’s roots in naval history explain why it’s “Bravo Zulu” and not “Whiskey Delta” for "well done."

Charlie Mike: Continue Mission

Echo Tango Sierra: Expiration Term of Service (someone who is about to complete their tour of duty)

Mikes: Minutes

November Golf: NG or No Go (fail)

Lima Charlie: Loud and Clear

Oscar-Mike: On the Move

Tango Mike: Thanks Much

Tango Uniform: Toes Up, meaning killed or destroyed

Tango Yankee: Thank You

=====

Most of us know, or at least have heard of the military alphabet in some way. We hear it being used in war and action movies, video games, and even in comic books and novels. But most people have no idea why it is used, how or why it was formed, or why it has become one of the most effective forms of tactical radio communication – not only in the U.S. – but also across the globe.

Long before the modern military alphabet was created, the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) had created the first spelling alphabet to be internationally recognized. This was called the ITU Radiotelephonic or Phonetic Alphabet, and it was adopted by the ITU in 1927.

Several changes were made to the original version of the spelling alphabet in 1932. The new and improved version was then adopted by the International Commission of Air Navigation and was used for civil aviation purposes until the beginning of WWII. However, it remained in use by the IMO (International Maritime Organization) until 1965.

Therefore I learned to use the military alphabet, The flags were all based upon that system! Plus most all the day to data functions; were always coded either by flags, or light or sound signals!

Example:

Echo flag - When food was being served

Bravo Flag - during refueling or ammo loading

Then underway Signals and Flags for operations Example:
Zulu 6 Golf = A Mach 1 or better aircraft was closing on the ship @ 50 ft above the sea {which means that tracking it was lost in the sea return! (Bad business of the ship).

CONCLUSION
Created out of necessity, the military phonetic alphabet has undergone many changes over the past decades. However, it remains as one of the most used forms of voice communications across the globe – especially in various agencies where clear and concise radio and telephone communication is a must.

This internationally recognized and used spelling alphabet can be found in armed forces, civil navigation, maritime operations, and law enforcement agencies in hundreds of countries
