For number 13 you have FAQ listed for initials but Joint Photographics Experts Group listed as the answer. FAQ = Frequently Asked Questions. Jpeg = Joint Photographics Experts Group. Had to learn that one in graphics programming. :)

For 15, CCU can also be synonimous with ICU (Intensive Care Unit), standing for Critical Care Unit, depending on the hoapital. The staff at the hospital I used to work for used the two interchangebly.

JCL = job control language
SDO = staff duty officer
NCO = non-commissioned officer
PX = post exchange (aka AAFES)
BAM = female Marine (an anatomical reference not appreciated by the fairer sex)
DRO = dining room orderly

Given your location I guess you sknow what SEPTA is.
