I’m not coming up with anything that feels authentic, but just to add an element that might trigger someone else’s idea, “double dash” is Morse Code for “M”.

In the US military, there’s a designation “DM” for “Designated Marksman” awarded to soldiers who qualify to a high standard at hitting distant targets.

“Two boots on the ground” is also a common military term for situations requiring physical presence of soldiers at a location, as opposed to the ability to attack or influence an area from the sky or from a distance.

Apple’s scheme for “dual boot” Macs to either MacOS or Windows was called “Boot Camp”. Likely, that doesn’t help, but...

Also, don’t forget the other meanings for {cha’}. It can be the action of showing or displaying something.
