Derogatory term for Army Soldiers, because of the fact they respond with hooah for any question given to them.

Marine: Oh man whats that smell? It smells like fucking Hooah!
Phonetic spelling of the military acronym HUA, which stands for "Heard Understood Acknowledged." Originally used by the British in the late 1800's in Afghanistan. More reciently adopted by the United States Army to indicate an affirmative or a pleased response.

Army term for agreement or acknowledgement
"Private, go get me a cup of coffee"
A slang term used widely in the US Army, hooah has many meanings. The most prevalent is "my brain is switched off, but my mouth is working anyway," or "you're an idiot, but you're also my superior officer, and I need a good evaluation, so sure, whatever you want." A synonym of the word 'like' as used by teenage girls. A filler word used in conversation, without meaning. Hooah may also be considered by the intellectually-challenged as proof of motivation, i.e. a soldier who is being being evaluated in a leadership training environment, must in some way prove that he/she is 'motivated'. Rather than focusing on delivering superior performance or demonstrating a high level of capability by which to be evaluated, the wise soldier will instead yell 'hooah' loudly and repeatedly at colleagues in order to sufficiently motivate them. (Hooah, like 'utilize,' should be stricken from the Army vocabulary.)
Quit saying that word. Shut up and think! This is a hooah-free zone!
Army slang used as a generic response to any question that would otherwise require a yes or no, or used in place of profanity when being given bullshit orders or receiving an ass chewing.
Dumbass NCO: Did you PMCS your Humvee?
Lazy Private: Hooah...
Worthless 1SG or Company Commander at COB formation at 2330 hrs: Formation tomorrow will be at 0315, bring in all of your issued gear and be prepared to take the APFT. Afterwards we will march to the motor pool for safety day activities which will last until 1730. Nobody will be released until POV inspections are done and all counseling statements are finished. After formation all barracks personell will stand at by their rooms for inspection, post housing personell will police call the parking lot, and off post personell will sweep the line at the motor pool.
