Default A=Alpha, B=Bravo.....do you know them all?

Do you know all of the words used when describing a letter (esp by the military and people on phones/radios). I thought of this b/c today I was saying a work starting with P on the phone the the guy kept saying "what", so I said P as in "..... Phillip" which didn't make much sense. First to get them all wins a prize....the prize of self worth.

A-Alpha
B-Bravo
C-Charlie
D-Delta
E-Echo
F-Frank(I think)
G-???
H-???
I-???
J-???
K-???
L-???
M-Mike
N-Nancy
O-???
P-???
Q-???
R-???

Cool, thanks guys, maybe I should hang it up by my phone so I don't end up thinking of bad words that start with certain letters rather than the real ones....V is for Victor, P is for Papa....got it.

alpha
bravo
charlie
delta
echo
foxtrot
golf
hotel
india
juliet
kilo
lima
mike
november
oscar
papa
quebec
romeo
sierra
tango
uniform
victor
whiskey
xray
yankee
zulu

(Just pretend that grasshopper answered this first, okay?)

Damn, I gotta get back in the cockpit...

Thanks for the link - when I learned these back in cub scouts it was Able, Baker, Charlie etc. and I've never thought about upgrading, or the need to. Learn something new every day here.
