You are absolutely correct my Navy friend but if you post much on here and use ''Navy terms'' and ''Navy descriptions'' of common items well known to Navy personnel................. Most of the non Navy personnel on these forums will have no idea what you are trying to say. If you use the term ''Bosun's pipe'' they will think it is a ''plumbing devise'' used on a BOAT and I would almost guarantee you that very few would know what a ''Bosun'' is.
Anyhow, Thanks for your input sailor and welcome to the forums. Its good to have a fellow SQUID aboard........ Fair winds ,,,,,, Following seas....

Thank a vet for your freedoms...... SOME DIED TO GIVE THEM TO US...
(think about it)

Nav terms also: go get a hundred feet of waterline. I need a quart of relative bearing grease.

And don't forget to see the seabats off the port bow!

We had some also:
Bucket of zero beats
an Ess tee 1
Side tone grease

Aboard ship we liked sending the new guy up to sick bay to get a fallopian tube. He would have to make several stops along the way, and each department would know what is up and send him on. Eventually he would get to see the Corpman (Doc fo the ship) and the Corpman would be in on it also. The newbee would then sit, wait for the doctor, and when he was told to go in to see the doctor, he would tell the doctor he needed a Fallopian tube.

The doctor was not in on the game.

Had the sea bat gig running one night outside the shipfitters shop, nailed one guy really good, his response, you guys stay right here my buddy has to see this. With friends like that who needs enemies.

Other favorites: board stretcher (as in cut this board 3 times and it's still too short), light bulb repair kit, and the ever popular sky hook for lifting heavy loads when there was no beam overhead.

On my first ship I was sent to the engine room for a bucket of steam. I instead went to the galley and got a bucket of dry ice, covered it with a rag, went back to the shipfitter shop, raised a corner of the rag and let the steam escape for all to see. Never sent me on any other runs. Helps to be 3rd generation Navy.

The explanation of all the acronyms in use in the Navy, Chief told me "maximum confusion, minimum letters"

When I was assigned duty on my 1st 'Boat' as a Fireman Apprentice, I was told by the COB to go get a left-handed Monkey Wrench and to not come back without it. Not knowing what the heck I was looking for, I went to a friend of mine and asked him to translate.

He told me what to tell the Chief, visit the Gedunk for a bite to eat and get back to the Boat about 2 hours later, which I did.

All heck broke loose when the Chief saw me and demanded where I'd been for so long. I reminded him he told me not to come back until I had what he told me to get.

He asked where it was and I told him that after a number of visits to different shops, the Chief at the Shipfitter's Shop said the Navy didn't stock them because he was the only left handed Monkey in the Navy.

And that's no-s?it!

I was in the Marine Corps with a kid who's name was A. A. Vandergrift IV.here is a picture of Commandant Vandergrift

The only problem was this young man was not the same race as Commandant Vandergrift. But he soon learned he could say he was his Grandfather and pull all kinds of light duty work. But it came back to haunt him when a Sgt-Major that had meet the 18th Commandant of the Marine Corps happened to hear of someone saying something about this guy.
