For Pete's sake.

Oorah- Marine spelling (And the Mounties)
Hooah- Army
Hooyah- Seals

The general consensus seems to be that Airmen are using the Army version.

Yes, I'm glad that someone actually took the time to make wiki pages about a two syllable sound.

Hooah, is not really a chant though.  It's more like a universal one word response.

"Let's go to the d-fac and get some chow!"
"Hooah!"

"Make sure you do a complete PMCS on your vehicle before the next convoy."
"Hooah."

And if you want to show how motivated you are to the visiting general, and why I hate the "word" hooah.

"How are you doing today soldiers?"
"HOOOOOOOOOOAH!"

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

Although your third use is pretty close it.

so what you're saying is that soldiers are in fact smurfs.

It sounds to me like it is a sound designed to 'de-think' soldiers (so they become less and less verbally conscious or able to maintain language-based thought, thereby making it possible for them to kill easier).


[But there's a slight possibility that that could be the cynic, and the Psychologist in me over-thinking it.   ;) ]

That is possible.  The Army likes to think of it as motivation and team building.  The Army is all about the motivation.

This actually pops into mind:

112. When saluting a “leg” officer, an appropriate greeting is not “Airborne leads the wa- oh…sorry sir”.
