woobie - what is a woobie in military


Also known as a poncho liner. One of the greatest pieces of military equipment that people who actually go to the field are sure to cherish. It’s a blanket, sleeping bag, pillow, poncho liner, and general source of happiness, especially for grunts.

My car broke down last winter and as I was freezing on the side of the road I remembered I packed my woobie and everything was fine.
