  • Getting It Right

    Posted by James R. Rummel on September 11th, 2004 (All posts by )

    Fusilier Pundit sent me an Email saying that I’ve been getting it wrong.

    In all of my posts about the recent CBS forgery story, I’ve been referring to the Texas Air National Guard as TANG. He says that the correct way to do it is to refer to the State by using the Post Office’s two letter abbreviation.

    So if I was writing about the Ohio National Guard it would be OHNG. The Ohio Air National Guard would be OHANG.

    So both the words Air and the words Army start with an “A”. That would create some confusion, so to abbreviate “Army” they use the letters “AR”. Luckily this hasn’t come up yet so I could embarrass myself any further.

    So from now on I’ll refer to the Texas Air National Guard by it’s correct abbreviation, TXANG.

    Thank you kindly, Fuz.
