I got about half of them, but are you sure #19 is right. I always thought WWF stood for World Wildlife Federation, not Strategic Arms Reduction treaty.

Oh, good grief. I grew up in the military and can beat that hands down.

NATO
SEATO
WAC
WAVE
WAF
ANZAC


Oh, heck, I really could go on forever. And it isn't just the military, after I got out of that biz, I worked for the Bishop Museum in Hawaii, and discovered that academia had its own language, then worked for a vet (as in animal doc, not military) and discovered whole new languages full of their own acronyms and so on.
