I'll break it down in terms even a skimmer engineering dept member can understand.

The Navy projects firepower from the sea. No firepower to project equals no need to propel the ships across the ocean. If we don't need the ships to go to sea we don't need MM, HT, DC, EM, etc. Quite frankly it would mean we don't need sailors and Marines. Then there would be no more runny noses, boo boos, or burning when they pee for me to worry about either.

Ignorance? Pretty sure everyone who replied to your thread has BTDT. you didn't get the answer you were looking for, this happens sometimes. And when the navy is involved, you can expect some ribbing from the Marines.

You see the way they have to mark our coffee cups dontcha? Our biggest exhibition of intelligence is giving the squids and semen, excuse me, SEAboys, I mean, seamen, all kinds of hell and grief.

Step 1 Tito, get a thicker skin or you're gonna hate the Navy.

Two: GM rating offers a couple flavored. There are the type who take care of ships weapons systems and those who deal with small arms like machine guns, rifles, shotguns, pistols, ammo, etc. A lot will depend on if you get a c school out of a school. Then a lot more depends on what size platform and type if platform you get assigned to. If you get assigned to a base with a range then you would likely deal with small arms. If you go to a smaller ship like a destroyer or frigate you may deal with large weapons systems and small arms. On a larger platform you may specialize a bit more but as a member of weapons department you may help and learn more about other systems and specialties. The Navy is big on letting you cross train and diversify so that if someone else goes out of commission someone else onboard can step up and fill in.

You will find a lot of good natured ribbing. It's kind of like family. It's ok to pick on each other a bit but when someone from outside picks on one of yours you tend to step in and defend.

First time a Marine calls you a squid just stand tall and take it as a compliment because a squid is a sea animal that craps all over marine life.

Not only that, you can use the snipe experience in the

then, what I know now...
