    It was in an email I recently got, from an old army unit having a reunion in Vegas....It is kind of perplexing, as I no longer "speak" military linguistics...

    J CIV DISA FO-NORTHCOM (???)
    What or who is this agency....

    J= ? (I have no idea)
    CIV= Civilian ( I think)
    Defense Information Systems Agency= DISA (confirmed)
    FO= ? ( no clue here either)
    Northcom. ( sheesh!)

    Ref: email I recently rec'd...The individual is known from my prior military service, But, the MIL affiliation/association is strange to me.

    I'm guessing "J" might hold for "Joint"( "purple suits")
    "northcom "= the "latest major command" ("specified command"?? can't remember the difference anymore) which covers the conus.

    Centcom= central command = Middle east
