Marine Corps Facts | USMC HANGOUT
Motivational Call - OOH RAH, OO RAH, HOORAH
Pronounced oooo ra. The spelling for it you will find to be far from the same. Oorah, Hoorah, Ooh-Rah, etc.. But which one is correct and where did it come from?
The answer is rarely the same anywhere, although OOHRAH (OOH-RAH) is used most frequently by Marines and usmc.mil as well as other government sites. The Marine Corps even registered OOH-RAH as a trademark. Even though no where is there something that says that OOH-RAH is the official spelling it is safe to say that it is the correct spelling given the above facts.
It's littered on the Marine Corps website.
So, saying or writing "oh" gets hinky. One can tell that would be the case just by listening to any "ooh rah" yell on YouTube. My title remains correct. "Ooh" is right, the shortened "oh" is just stupid. Ya gotta learn to listen to it first.
