YUT!!! Encouragement from a Marine

Got a great text from India Co. Marine, Joey Habay, who was a Squad Leader in the Wpns Platoon.  He and I have had several FB text sessions, and he was one of the sources that helped me as I put together the chapter about the attack on Gannon.

After I sent him the latest draft, he responded with a highly encouraging text. I can’t tell you how much this meant to me. As I’ve related to some, this whole process is like climbing a mountain, and I can’t see the peak. There’s a lot of clouds and mist, and I just gotta keep putting one foot in front of the other.  Some days are harder than others.  So, when Joey sent me this, it was like a big shot of adrenaline (shared w permission):

Joey HabayYour story of us marines that day was spot on. Awsome job!! YUT!!!!!!. (Marine term means like saying bad ass or f’ing great). Now people will believe me when I tell the story of April 11th 2005. That day, and the battle for Naseriyah in 03′, I re-live in my dreams. Thanks from my heart for telling our story for all the great marines involved on that day

Now I just gotta find out where YUT came from. Its new to me.  Is it an acronym? If someone knows the origin, I’d love to hear it.
