I came on these during my internet travels-

BBBB =  (the 4 firstaid B's) Breathing, Bleeding, Breaks and Burns. (order of diagnosis and treatment for casualties)
NESW = Never Eat Shredded Wheat. (method of remembering points of compass in clockwise motion)
SSSSSS = (the 6 stealth S's) Sound, Shape, Shine, Shadow, Smell, Silhouette. -
i.e.- Dont make unnecessary SOUND or noise
Break up your SHAPE with camouflage or cover
Dont let your kit items SHINE in the sun
Stay in SHADOWS
Dont use SMELLY perfumed soaps, aftershave, don't smoke, and take care with camp fires because  the cooking smells (and the smoke) will give you away.
Stay off the hilltops and ridgelines so you dont stand out as a SILHOUETTE

When I was dog sledding I could smell cigarette smoke up to two miles away, where the checkpoint was.

And even for the military, some of these are different depending on where you served.  For example, the R in FUBAR was Recognition when I was in Germany back in 89.  But the flyboys at McCord AFB in Washington in 92 (Bunch of great guys by the way) used Reality.
As a heavy junk guy who worked with Mates R often stood for Repair.
I'm surprised no one brought up the 6Ps, Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.
