    The Phonetic Alphabet is Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliet, Kilo, Lima, Mike, November, Oscar, Papa, Quebec, Romeo, Sierra, Tango, Uniform, Victor, Whiskey, Xray, Yankee, Zulu. Thats what it was in 1967 when I learned it and committed it to memory. Im not aware of it changing since then.

    That is it. It would be easy to find if you did a search on the internet.

    Capitalize Marine and Corps- note that there is nothing between the p and the s.

    Just tryin' to keep these meatheads on their toes!!! There is a small chance that one or two of them may need to learn morse code some time in the near future!

    Just realized that I missed one...

    dih-dah-dah WHISKEY

    Now, what self-respecting 2621 Marine forgets the Whiskey???

    Perhaps you didn't miss it-it was just in your other hand and you overlooked it!

    Oh....I thought those were the words to a 1950's "Doo-Wop" song!

    Yeah, when I was learning morse down in Pesacola, all I could think of was the Police song De-Doo-Doo-Doo De-Dah-Dah-Dah. Talk about making a job harder than it had to be!
