    I was honorably discharged from US Army in 1978. I never heard soldiers using POG. We used FIGMO, and FUBAR all the time. I remember in AIT some guy wasn’t going to formation and I asked him why and he told me he was FIGMO. I asked him what was that and he looked at me incredulously and told me what it meant, and I never forgot it going forward…

    I was a 98C, Traffic Analyst. In Vietnam I was in a Radio Research Unit, or RRU. Once I was asked what RRU stood for. I said it was a Ranger Recon Unit. We'd go into an area before the rangers and make sure they would be OK there.

    This was a joke.

    My husband was an 11B Mountain qualified infantry…part of the 10th Mountain division.
    He is currently at AIT re-classing to be a β€œPOG” if you will lol! He says he’s always an Infantryman at heart though. Haha

    Does a "pog" and a none "pog" get paid the same? I heard grunts only do inventories and do lots of janitorial and landscaping stuff during peace time.

    Random question as I don’t know much. Are the 75 Rangers highly trained? Are they highly respected.

  • Billy Joe

    We called them REMF's, rear echelon mother f*.
    When I was a infantry assistant ops Sgt, I had a sign on my desk, REMF and proud of it!
    Military is too political incorrect.

    Lol freakin people, if your not in the infantry your a pog, infantrymen are grunts, pogs don't like being called pogs and it's mainly because in the corps grunts hate most pogs, there are some good marines that are pogs but they are usually in a completely different marine corps than the infantry, every time I was ever attached to a pog unit I usually lost my mind, they have no discipline, no respect for rank, they're usually playing grab ass with female marines" there are no females in the grunts", they complain a lot, the leadership is always trying to be friends with their subordinates, it's more like college than the marine corps, some pogs are more pog than others, if they are ground combat forces like tankers they arnt as bad. In the grunts it's like living a barbaric life, we compare it to being on the yard at San Quentin if you show weakness your gonna get ate up, we talk shit to each other non stop and if somebody says let's take a walk over the burm or behind the barracks you go and try and get the 1st punch in, most of the time we're sleeping in the dirt or fighting holes luxury is a cot, we live off of mre's talk about screwing women constantly, we cuss a lot, hit ports around the world and screw hookers and to strip clubs and drink for days at a time then when we are sent to a combat zone they throw us right into a hornets nest of bad guys and tell us to do our job "kill bad guys" and we do it proudly together as a team with our brothers" and we fight and die together" there's nothing else in the world that has the comradery like the infantry, hardship and struggle brings men together, pogs will never know this kind of comradery.

    I'm old (Viet Nam era) and thought it meant homosexual. Hearing it in more modern times made me wonder if it had different meanings. Thanks for clearing it up.

    I've heard it used in a demeaning way to mean "an uneducated person who's not a grunt."
