Well, I remember Cmdr. Randy "Duke" Cunningham describing a dogfight he had with a North Vietnamese ace, and he said,

"As I looked back over the canopy, I saw this little pair of gomer goggles, little gomer scarf, and Col. Toon going vertical-to-vertical with me, going through about 15,000 feet."

Not sure if "gomer" was intended as a direct ref to the North Vietnamese, or what.
