This design goes out to the Signal Corps.

The military branch, responsible for military communications. Based on the phonetic alphabet, the front of this shirt features a statement utilizing the phonetic alphabet that most of us have once asked at least once in our lifetime.

The back features the NATO phonetic alphabet, it is a list of words used to identify letters in a message transmitted by radio, telephone, and encrypted messages. The phonetic alphabet can also be signaled with flags, lights, and Morse Code. When on the radio, spoken words from an approved list are substituted for letters.

For example, the word "Army" would be "Alfa Romeo Mike Yankee" when spelled in the phonetic alphabet. This practice helps to prevent confusion between similar sounding letters, such as "m" and "n," and to clarify signals communications that may be garbled during transmission.
