English[edit]

Prepositional phrase[edit]

OCONUS

  1. (chiefly military) Acronym of outside [the] contiguous United States; i.e. Alaska, Hawaii, the US territories, and all other countries.

Usage notes[edit]

This is sometimes mistakenly defined as outside the continental United States, possibly because the concept of "continent" is more familiar than contiguity; but continental would include Alaska.
