1. a motivational word used in the U.S. Military, similar to the word oorah
- often used when one is either too lazy or not motivated enough to say oorah
or other popular word of motivation.
2. used when in a large group of military members. When they shout a motivational term on cue, some may shout "YUT!" instead, and often in a sharp, awkward voice, just to stand out.
When the Master Sergeant tells a lower-ranking Marine to complete a task, one who is new would likely shout "oorah!" to sound motivated. But a Marine who has been in longer may likely shout "Yut!" instead to show his motivation.
