Rear Echelon Mother Fucker. One who has no frontline or combat experience, and therefore makes huge errors at expense of human life.
The REMF's decisions make sense only if you think of human beings as statistics. This is the main problem with REMFs- they think of people as numbers.
Shit! That REMF canceled the supply drop! We're on our own for this one!
a term of derision used by front line soldiers to describe those in cushy jobs in the rear. It is short for 'Rear Echelon Mother Fucker' and is familiar to most troopers who have been involved in any conflict.
"This place is a nightmare. I wish to be a REMF," said the American soldier during the 1968 Battle for Hue.
An acronym popularized by Tom Clancy
and particularly his character John Clark
, it stands for "rear echelon motherfucker". A top officer in the military or a civilian with great influence over the service, it is a person who calls the shots from an armchair with little care about the kids whom their decisions will be effecting or the parents who will be getting bodybags for Christmas.
"Those REMFs don't care about us line-animals
. We can only trust ourselves."
REMF = Rear Echelon Mother Fucker.
Military acronym used to refer to certain support personel especialy chickenshits and brass who deliberatly seek to avoid duty in the field,especially combat duty.
This term does not apply to all support personel.
George Bush is a REMF who went AWOL and managed to start a fucked up war that others fought while he stayed in the rear with the gear.
A Rear Echelon Motherfucker REMF is someone who has a relatively safe job and good living conditions in a war zone who is hated (because of envy) by frontline combat soldiers who have neither, and wished they did.
There are two basic types of REMFs: Pencil pushing administrators, and combat support personnel. It is a myth that REMFs risk the lives of those in combat on the frontlines, in fact the opposite is true. Combat support REMFs keep the grunts alive by supplying "beans, bullets and blood."
The FNG Army PFC 11B was pissed off at the personnel clerk REMF at the 20th Replacement Center at Long Binh for assigning him orders him to 1st Infantry at Khe Sahn to help the Marines fight the NVA. When besieged Khe Sahn was resupplied by C-123 airdrops of ammo, medical supplies and food loaded by REMF Air Force combat support troops at Quang Tri & Da Nang, the Army PFC 11B realized he had been hating out of envy the guys he owed his life to. Some of which later were KIA in rocket attacks.
Military acronym for "Rear Entry Mother Fucker". Used to describe any who sits behind a desk an only propose in life is to ruin peoples lives because they do not know any better or lack of common sence. Most popular examples are Quartermasters, Intelligences Officers, any Officer in an executive or non-combat position and those who work in the Pentagon on up.
It also describes the way their office is set up. Where you have to walk around the desk to enter from the rear. The desk also faces the door so in case there is a scuffle you have to go over their desk to get your hands around their throat.
"That damn Intel Officer is a REMF he sent us to the wrong coordinates"
"The Quartermaster would not issue us night vision goggles for the tonight's mission, what a REMF"
