          Most of us used communication based on our own given languages. But let me introduce to you the power of phonetics - in which it was widely used by different military units in every nation in the world.


          It was traced back during World War II in where the allies, like the Americans and the British, have their own series of spelling alphabet. But the first internationally-recognized phonetics can be traced back 1927 by ITU. And it was not until the 1950s that the ICAO code is introduced in which it was used primarily by NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Members until today.

And here's the table of the NATO's edition of phonetics...

          Also, there is also other spelling phonetics alphabet aside from those of ICAO. Like this Russian edition of phonetics.

         We all know that in speaking of military, we speak of cool weapons and those tools of mass destruction. But all of these would not be helpful in creating a formidable, undefeated military without training, determination, bravery, and most of all, phonetics in simplifying military movements in an efficient tactical and strategic planning for a sure victory.
