Fuckin' New Guy. Term still used in the western English-speaking armed forces
of the west (primarily United
States, Australia, United
Kingdom and Canada) to denote a new soldier fresh off his basic training. It means they have
the basics but no real experience, so they do everything by the book (which is not always best) and they are overly keen and always shut down on long
Some people stay F.N.G.'s for years, however
most switched-on soldiers lose the status within a year.
