Anonymous:What does "stay frosty" mean?
What does "stay frosty" mean? I believe it means 'Stay alert and ready for trouble', eg if you are a soldier in a dangerous place. It's not an expression I've heard, except in a few movies.
Best wishes, Clive
Anonymous:Stay frosty has two meanings.
Anonymous:Who ever said they think it is becoming a popular term in the military, you are somewhat correct. I am a Staff Sergeant in the United States Army. I have been to Iraq three times. Out in the field (A.K.A. a battle field) people do say "Stay Frosty", but we all have our own terms within our own platoon and squad. It is also just like the term "Never pet a burning dog", (Both of which happen to be titles of "Generation Kill" movie series) which basically means, don't try to help something or someone when it's too late. But thats just what I think it means, to other people it means something different, it could mean dont try to fix something when its not broken or it could literally mean don't pet a burning dog.
Anonymous:Aliens was just on TV, and it is also the title of one episode of the HBO Series "Generation Kill". Both are about Marines, so I assume it's becoming a popular phrase amongst the military.
Anonymous:I would assume it is military "code" for "fight ready"
Anonymous:Slang meaning for "stay alert and ready".
People are waiting to help.
