PGMA and your cabinet! You are all POGUES!


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pogue is a pejorative military slang term used to describe non-infantry, non-combat soldiers, staff, and other rear-echelon or support units.[1] A related term is the acronym REMF, or "rear-echelon mother fucker". "Pogue" frequently describes those who don't have to undergo the stresses that the infantry does, and is generally used as a diminutive for any non-infantry personnel that disagrees or impedes the wants of a "grunt".
Beyond its military use, Pogue is known to be used in civilian circles to describe a person who is in a less than admirable social position to the speaker, someone who poses to be more than they claim to be, or someone who is inept, i.e. marching-band pogue, fuckin pogue, or just pogue.
