Soldiers, sailors, marines who's primary methods of infils and extractions during combat operations include only ground manuevers are referred to as "legs" by EVERYONE using helos or fixed wing. IE: Special operations.

Any regular military unit is considered a leg unit by the personnel in SOCOM, USASOC, and JSOC. "Grunts"/regular infantry, five jump chumps, anyone training to conduct in airborne ops in garrison but never perform them in combat, and all POG 's are defined as Legs. It is as much a mindset as it is a status.
The 82nd Airborne (AKA: Eighty Douche) takes pride on jumping as much as possible, wearing pink berets, blasting Van Halen's song "jump" around post, but NEVER perform airborne or helo ops in combat. This makes them epic posers, puts them in the Leg category, and earned them the title "The airplane gang".

Many service members attend airborne school, thinking being "airborne qualified" will impress others. They then report to a leg unit who has nothing to do with airborne ops and never jump again, making them a "five jump chump" and a leg.

Special operations loath legs.

Used as a slang term by airborn members of the United States Army to playfully describe non-airborn members.

See dirt dart, as it is the expression used in the same military branch with reverse definition.

1.Originally referred to the duration of an amphetamine high. If it lasted a long time it had long legs. If it lasted a short while it had short legs. If it didn't get you high it didn't have any legs at all. 2. By extension in the mainstream it means how long anything lasts.
