    Humor for my Navy and Marine friends

    I was going to say the same but somehow got caught up in work. I was stationed at the clinic at NAS Cecil Field, RIP, in the middle 90s and all the airdales called the largest warships in the world "The Boat." Me: Where's your health record? ABH2 Wilson: It's still on the boat. Hotshot Hornet...

    Semper Paratus!

    Just the opposite in the Marine Corps. All officers are addressed by their juniors as sir or ma'am. That's especially true for captain and above. Getting away with calling a butter bar looootenent is easy. Even the most senior enlisted and officer would never address a Marine O-6 as colonel.

    Oh now, we were off to such a good start. Nobody calls a Navy Captain, Cap. Nor a Coast Guard Captain I bet.

    I can't see myself in a sub.

    I put in for subs and did everything but execute the orders. I know, I was just an enlisted fella but the boat has no recognition of paygrade when it comes to assuring its return to the surface intact. I did the physical exam, an interview from a Sub IDC, the compression chamber, and the...

    Problem with "1st Choice" Academy

    Hi Sean, online, you sound over the top humble in your desire to serve and it sounds like you now know which service would be the best fit for Sean 17. Since Army aviation loses out to the Navy and AF aviation you obviously want to fly fixed wing aircraft. Very cool. Fast movers are the best...

    The Everything Drawer - Everyone has one, right? (post anything - within the rules)

    I thought so. I was first generation MRE. I use the large John Wayne can openers at home. They are easier on the old fingers but keep me connected to my youth.

    Currently a Female Plebe at USMA - Ask Me Anything

    The first time I heard somebody say, “Thank you for your choice to serve,” it was directed at my son. I said ”what, wait, what.” I was not too far removed from my retirement after 26 years in the World’s Greatest Navy and my son was receiving accolades for just signing up. He’s a product of...

    Currently a Female Plebe at USMA - Ask Me Anything

    Hi, there young person. Did you just today find this site or did you lurk for awhile and just now join? Did you benefit greatly from the sage advice from members here and now want to pay it back, or pay it forward? And most importantly, what soap works best in the showers of West Point?

    yeah, "K-rats"? I got in on the last of the C-rats. Most of them tasted like a roll of nickels.

    Well hello there new member. Far be it from me to tell you to search the numerous threads on this topic so I will offer this which is to not only take challenging courses, but if you know duel enrollment classes only articulate to FSU or Florida State College at wherever, why would you want to...

    Service selections

    Academy grads who go immediately to med school have truly hit life’s lottery. USUHS in Bethesda is a world class medical education with courses not offered in many civilian schools. The best medical school is the one in which one is admitted.
