What is the radio call names for the alphabet alpha Bravo or baker etc?

Alpha, Bravo, are simply the letters A & B. Baker is the old WWII term for the letter "B." In Vietnam it was "Bravo." The letter "E" in WWII may have been "Easy" (like in the comic book days (1960's) of SGT Rock of "Easy Company"), in Vietnam it was "Echo." Those are for the military alphabet. They are not call signs. A call sign is (or was) a combination of characters; and is assigned to you by higher command...you don't get to choose your own call sign (except in rare cases). A military call sign is simply identifying who you are. It is used in place of a name. Instead of saying over the telephone, "Hi Mike, this is John." In the military its, "Mike 27 this is Yankee 6, over." The word "Over" is saying to you, it's your turn to speak. "Out" means "end of conversation." Which is why so many military veterans don't like to watch Hollywood war movies...they keep using improper radio procedures, "Over and Out!" Which literally means, "Go ahead talk and shut up."


What is a soldier's call sign?

All US military units use them, pilots flying their jets might be called, "Able Baker 5 this is Alpha 3, over...", US Navy warships operating off North Vietnamese coastlines were often "Yankee Station...", US Warships off of the South Vietnamese coastlines were often "Dixie Station...". We use those "call signs" for military security reasons; the enemy is always listening.
