When it's Sunday in San Francisco, it's Monday in Manila.

Also from Plebe Navigation - True Virgins Make Dull Company at Weddings. (Converting True to Compass headings)
Can Dead Men Vote Twice at Elections (Relax folks, not political commentary, converting Compass to True headings)
Even Red Nuns have Odd Black Can's / Red Right Returning (Buoys on inland water)

* I suspect that none of those fly in today's kinder gentler Navy, and those are pretty tame compared to the pneumonics I made up myself --
(They are so good, I still can recite the classes of Soviet Submarines 35 years later !)

For some reason, the Soviet subs made for a very good mnemonic in my case as well. Juliet, Echo, Charlie, Whiskey, Papa class subs which were the Surface to Surface missile carriers when I went through SWOS Basic. And no, I will not repeat how they are remembered.
