From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hooyah is the war cry or battle cry most commonly used in the Navy, though sometimes exclusively associated with the Navy SEALs. It is similar to the expressions Oorah in the Marine Corps and Hooah in the U.S. Army. It is used to say Ok or understood or is sometimes used to show enthusiasm. Hooyah is also the war cry of the United States Air Force Combat Controllers, Pararescue Jumpers, Tactical Air Control Party, and United States Air Force Security Forces.

Recently, Air Force Civil Engineers have taken up this battle cry.

Recently, some US Navy sailors have tried to impose this "battle cry" upon the Navy at large.

The origin is unclear, but may be related to "Heard-Understood-Acknowledged" (HUA).

Underwater Demolition Team veteran Jesse Ventura ended his inaugural gubernatorial speech with "Hooyah."
