As one of the 'ex-military types', I have no idea why not yellow.
Possibly could have something to do with the old saying
"military-intelligence", if you know what I mean.

Okay, this one is for all you current and ex-military types out
there. I'm reading a users guide for a work planning database.
One of the db fields is called Status, and the values are Red,
Amber, or Green. My question: Why Amber? What in the blazes
is wrong with Yellow?

I don't want to hear "because that's the way the military has
always done it." I'd like a real, logical reason if one exists.

If they want to get fancy with yellow, I say they should use
Ochre, Amber, and Chartreuse.
