  1. I used to be so good with the military alphabet that I could spell things out without hesitation, but one day, when I was talking to a German vendor, trying to negotiate a better deal for future construction projects for the military in SW Germany, they wanted me to spell my name. I used the German pronunciation instead of English. My secretary, A Czech who had been a displaced person after WWII and married to a German, was surprised that I could switch between alphabets without slowing down. These days, I do the English alphabet slowly.

    1. One of my jobs was a security officer for police department, we had to use the alpha codes, the 10-Codes, Action Codes, etc. I don’t remember many of those, mostly the Alpha Codes.
