Foo fighters

"Foo fighters." A phrase I haven't heard - or seen - in years. ZUI this article from the Dec 1945 issue of American Legion magazine.

The article contains one sentence, not particularly relevant to the topic, that struck me as Truth:
Now in the Army, when you "note" anything it means that you neither agree nor disagree, nor do you intend to do anything about it.
That pretty much applies to the Navy, too, though as one friend pointed out, in the Navy there are often certain "f*** you" connotations to the use of the word "noted."

H/T to Tam.
