While going through some papers my father gave me when he was flying refueling missions (KC-135s) out of Utapao, Thailand with the 307th Strategic Wing as part of the Young Tiger Mission, I found this rather amusing titled memorandum called; “Share a Boner Program”.  The memo was part of a welcoming packet to new flight crews arriving in country.  I would imagine that the senior ranking officers and NCOs took the word boner to mean its primary definition of; “a stupid mistake” but the junior officers and enlisted had to have had quite the laugh.  I find it odd that a clerk typist or someone else in the safety division didn’t inform Lt Col Sanguinet (author of the memo)  the secondary meaning of the word.

Good one!!  I'm glad that I swallowed my last wine sip before bursting out laughing.  Saved cleaning my laptop screen.

I would love to know what Lt Col Sanguinet found in the "Boner Box" that was located in the operations debriefing room.

I believe that "Boner" is a shortened version for Bonehead or Boneheaded. As in "That was a boneheaded move! or What a bonehead."

I'm not sure the origins or the "ROOT" of the word but you're probably right.
