If I'm not mistaken you would be in charge of the maintaining and operation of the ship weapons systems. This could be anything from a gunner, bomb builder, maintaining smaller arms and so on.

I recently worked with a retired Chief who was a gunner's mate. He was dumber than a box of rocks, wish you luck!

They make it sound good, at the recruiter's office.

Did they tell you where they store all your munitions on

the class of ship to which you're being assigned, and

who's going to be toting all those rounds(by which I

mean, for the ships artillery-sized guns, not the 9mms,

and .308s...) from the pier to the munitions stowage?

Needless to say, you'll be lean and mean from the extra exercise.

I always wished I'd shipped as a snipe.(Engineer) it's a lot easier to

cross over experience to civilian trades, that way.

As a GM, you'll be assigned to the Weapons Division of

the ship. Pray your Division Officer isn't a blockhead.

Ours was...

GM is a rate with a lot of history. You might be able to find a GM rate manual online. And that will tell you what you need to know. And it will give you a head start on your advancement exam.

Snipes are only there to transit the weapon system to the deployment area.
