History

The letter M this is the letter m Phoenician Mem, via the Greek Mu (Μ, μ). Semitic Mem probably originally pictured water. It is known that Semitic people working in Egypt c. .2000 BC borrowed a hieroglyph for "water" that was first used for an alveolar nasal (/n/, because of the Egyptian word for water, "n-t". This same symbol became used for M in Semitic, because their word for water began with that sound.^ Because the Vietminh had became the most powerful resistance movement in Japanese-controlled Vietnam, the OSS began sending supplies as well as advisors to work with Ho.
