This has been bothering me all year. It's a very brief question:
Is it spelt HOORAH or OOH-RAH?
Its been driving me nuts

Or as I like to say Who Ya, cause that's what the Army sounds like they are saying when they say it.

LOL no it really is OOH-RAH at least according to usmc.mil it is, and since that is the Marine Corps offical site, I go with they way they spell it in all their articles and such.

Thank you for that Txsbmw.
I would argue but in this situation I think you know more than me.
However I did entire OOH-RAH and HOORAH into google to see the results only to find that HOORAH has 880,000 results while OOH-RAH has about 130,000.
I guess in this situation hoorah/ooh-rah is all about pronounciation rather than spelling huh?
But what would I know.

I know my Drill Instructors spelled it out for us when I was in Boot Camp. He definately made it clear that OohRah was to be used! Get some!
