Misuse of the word civilian. That means not military.

No... you ask for a Rum & Coke.
When making a Long Island Iced Tea, it's a "splash of coke"

It's a generic term, and it is indeed regional.
Though I was born and raised in California, the regionally correct term is indeed "soda"... "coke" is more of a southeastern used term, and "pop" is more midwestern.

That's because in Manitoba, it's easy to mistake the mosquitoes for a squadron of B29s.
