I'll start first. I was a RM (Radioman) in the U.S. Navy. Had several NEC's (MOS to you Army guys) the most valuable was Enlisted Frequency Manager. I was one of nineteen in the Navy with that NEC. Still doing frequency management in my civilian career.

Probably have a pretty easy job. Just reach around and pull some out of your diaper. Stop by again when you sober up. It's not often us old guys get to converse with a spoiled teenager. 

My dad spent a lot of time with the grunts. He was an Navy FMF Corpsman for 14 of his 20 yrs.

I jumped out of perfectly good airplanes.   When I got too scared to jump, they pushed me.

I was in the Navy 73-77...I was a 'JMSN' (JACK of all trades-MASTER at none).

 

I was a Seaman (SN) onboard U.S.S. Kiska AE-35 (Ammunition Escort) I worked in R.A.S.E div. don't remember anymore what that stands for. But we worked the transfor-heads....to load other ships and helicopters with ammunition and fuel. (I was 17)

 

Then Stationed in Yokosuka and worked in Base Maintenance and finally when I married and was ready to start to settle down I became a Cook/Striker and took my tests and training while assigned to base maintenance and was transferred to The U.S.S. Constellation in San Diego....and then out as an MSSN (Mess Management Specialist)
