Army term for agreement or acknowledgement
"Private, go get me a cup of coffee"
"Hooah Sergeant"
โดย RyanSm 22 เมษายน 2008
1. Acknowledgment, although sometimes not agreement.
2. Excessively rigid or displays unnecessary military bearing.

Believed to have originated with Army Engineers in World War II, who when forced to "Hurry Up And Wait" chanted acronymn - H.U.A.W. - which became today's Hoo-ah. See also hooah
1. "We're supposed to dig a new latrine this morning, then get ready to move out tonight. Hoo-ah."

2. "That new lieutennant is way too hoo-ah."
