It has circulated on the Internet and elsewhere in particular since a 1995 iteration that was represented as an actual transcript of such a communication released by the office of the U.S. Chief of Naval Operations.

Night Vision Goggles

Ever wonder why night vision goggles display everything in green? If so, it's because the human eye can distinguish more shades of green than any other color. Night vision technologies can be broadly divided into three main categories: image intensification, active illumination and thermal imaging. The image is said to become "intensified" because the output visible light is brighter than the incoming IR light, and this effect directly relates to the difference in passive and active night vision goggles.
