Military terms for ordinary things

So, I'm into roleplaying, and my most recent character is a pain in the ass, stereotypical military type. Since the roleplaying I do is text-based, language is all I have to convey her personality and such.

Are there any good sites that give military slang or terms for ordinary, everyday things? (For instance, she could be at a fancy restaurant and still call the bathroom a "latrine".) I tried looking at U.S. Military slang on Wikipedia; while informative, it's not quite what I'm looking for, since a lot of the terms either don't apply to the setting I'm roleplaying in, or are so obscure that other people wouldn't know what the heck I'm talking about unless they were military in real life.

Thanks for the help!
