New Crew Order

A term for a bunch of bros living in the streets of woodstream. That just hang around doing rebellious stuff, eating franks, riding out and just enjoying life one second at a time. And will occasionally pull some wrestling moves on any shoobies trying to come in there hood.
Man I was walking with my daughter when the NCO swooped in and pulled a one winged angel on me.

Non Commissioned Officer. The NCO is the military. The NCO is everything new soldiers/marines/sailors wish they were. NCO's are smarter, faster, more deadly, and more ferocious than any other service member in the military. The NCO cares for the members below him and is responsible for their lives. The NCO actively demonstrates what a bad ass mother fucker should be. Crossing paths with an NCO is about the most foolish thing a new enlistee or new officer can do as the NCO will make their lives a living hell. Good officers recognize the value that well seasoned NCO's bring to the table. Privates and Seamen can only dream of being as courageous and as deadly as an NCO.
Joe/Officer: Uggggghhhhhh why are we doing dime and washer drills?

NCO: BECAUSE IF YOU PLAN ON WALKING OFF THE BATTLEFIELD ALIVE, THEN YOU BETTER SHOOT BETTER THAN THE ENEMY. DON'T MAKE ME KILL YOU.

When Non-Commissioned Officers of a military service make up words to sound educated, even though they clearly lack any sophisticated language skills.

This includes terminology such as Irregardless, which is now so mainstream that it appears in Merriam-Webster's dictionary despite the "Ir-" prefix acting as a negation, so the definition shifts to "not regardless" creating helpless confusion among any that actually know how to use English when this particular atrocity is used.
"Irregardless, you need to get that done, Private."

"I'm sorry, I'm an English major so I don't understand your NCO Speak."
