Charlie Don't Surf
Charlie Don't Surf is a famous line from the 1979 film Apocalypse Now, spoken by Lt. Col. Kilgore as justification for taking a beach at the Mekong Delta so the American soldiers could go surfing. American soldiers referred to the Viet Cong as "Victor Charlie" or simply as "V-C." "Victor" and "Charlie" are both letters in the NATO phonetic alphabet, corresponding to 'V' and 'C', respectively. "Charlie," when used alone, referred to communist forces in general, both Việt Cộng and Vietnamese.
