*Bravo Zulu originated as a naval signal, typically conveyed by flag-hoist or radio, meaning "Well done!" Since its origin, Bravo Zulu has been used by senior U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guard officers to congratulate or compliment their crews or commands for outstanding performance!
