I only got FUBAR because I've seen the Thin Red Line...I got soul, but I'm not a soldier. :/
I usually associate IHTFP with MIT, actually...
I knew FUBAR and probably could have guessed FUBB.
None of the others, however.
Kinda funny because I grew up with a number of them, but we had bases close in Mississippi and Florida and a bit further upstate in Alabama. Both of my Grandfathers were military men, too.
i used to see 'snafu' a lot, and now i finally know what it means after all this time. :P
I didn't see that they were acronyms so reading 'SNAFU' I thought some shojo character bouncing around chanting 'SNAFU' in the uh, name of snuff *cringe*
ROFL... that search is too funny!!!

And I knew a few of these, mainly because of being around military for soooooooo long.
I knew DILLIGAF and FUBAR.
Heck I used SNAFU and FUBAR on a regular basis at some of my past jobs. None of which were every military in nature but always described the management I worked for to a tee.
