Default JMB was never Navy

If he was, then he wouldn't have put the port of the 1911 on the starboard side.

Depends on whether you are facing fore or aft.


And anyway, here is documentation that the Navy does not know crap.

Just remember, port and left both have four letters. Fore is forward, aft almost rhymes with ass.

FWIW, sitting in the stern (aft) the STEERING BOARD (single sweep oar used as a rudder) was attached to the RIGHT side of the boat. The steerboard (starboard) was on the right, so you put the other (left side) against the dock (the port).

I hope that toilet took out either a VC or an NVA regular so when the got to the Pearly Gates and St. Peter asked "How did you die?" and the BG repiled "I was killed by a falling ****ter during an air attack" then St. Pete looks at him and says "You go to hell!"
