    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.

    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.

    When a engineer goes to A-school before they go to there rate specific school. They go through basic engineering school called basic engineering common core. And we did not learn anything about weapon systems. And during HT A-school I did not learn anything about weapon systems. Just welding and brazing.

    In effort to control procurement costs, the Pentagon decides to standardize coffee cups across all the services.
    The only difference being the stenciling on the bottom:

    Army Version: "coffee cup"
    Navy Version: "Cup, Coffee"
    Air Force Version: "cup, beverage, hot, cold, Mod 4 Mark III X29523-14a"

    Marine Version: " coffee cup: DRINK FROM OTHER END"
