Did you mention overhead and bulkhead? How about scuttlebutt?

Bushy, you are right about the USS Never Sail. I don't know where I came up with that other one. Do you remember tying your clothes on the line with the cords and having to make sure every one was a square knot!

Yes, I was an airdale, although most of my time was spent with the first marine division.

I went from boot camp at San Diego to Millington, Tenn. (near Memphis) for electronics school, then straight to Viet Nam where I stayed through 4 campaigns. When I left Nam, I had about 3 months left in the service. The sent me to Chase Naval Air Station in Beeville, Texas, about 70 miles from where I was raised. After I was there for about a month, they started offering early-outs and I took off for the brush country, and never looked back.

The navy does have a language of its own.

I was asked one time why I joined the Navy. Well, I drove up to San Antonio (to enlist in the armed services), to the downtown post office, and found a long hall with the offices of every branch's recruiters. The first door was the Navy recruiter. That's a far as I went. If it would have been the USMC, I'd have been a grunt.

It seems like a whole bunch of us migrated to this web site. Quite an oddity, wouldn't you say.

Do you remember the two definitions for Scuttlebutt? And did you know that ships have floors and ceilings too...

Is strange aint it .. Shocked

I went in because my best friend in high school told me during a summer job after we graduated , that he was leaving in a month or so .. He joined abt six weeks before me , and I was in boot almost two weeks ahead of him ..

Navy with no Cold War must be rather boring I would think , cause there was always something going on ..

Scuttlebutt is the drinking fountain and gossip.

I didn't know that ships had floors and ceilings. Like I say, my experience with ships is limited.

It looks like the Navy took over this forum. We'll have to wait for daylight in Australia for the Aussie Army to chime in. How about it Vince? I was stationed in Viet Nam with about 20 Australians. Fine bunch. I'd go into battle with them any day.

The under side of a deck is a "ceiling" and if it has a sheething just below that like a double deck (or bottom) the top of the bottom layer is the "floor".

Just what we need...A bunch of "ground pounders"

Jack...I didn't punch holes in the sea, but I left a lot of grooves in'er surface...

Hell...I can't remember...I usually followed the traffic when aboard ship...I believe you have it though...

Hatch with scuttle

Scuttle

Ladder

Passage way

Shoot the breeze

Gangway

Brow

Camels

Probably the most important word of all. No matter when we served or where we are at now. "Shipmate"

Bushy,

I've never heard the term Camels, except for the beasts of burden.

A camel is used to seperate a ship from the pier. Simular to a fender except it is more like a raft. Usually painted all shades of grey from splatter when the deck apes are painting the freeboard of MY ship...

I was forced into the Army....when Dad was going through flight school in Pensacola, my mom and I would meet him at church on Sundays, Dad asked me to get his hat/cover one day and I went down the shelf lined with all kinds of covers, at 5, I really liked the one with all the gold stuff on it, so I grabbed it and gave it to him. Dad was none too pleased as he was far from a Rear Admiral in rank. I was introduced to the owner of the hat, I even asked him if he drove boats....yes, I said boats. Needless to say, I think my name was blacklisted.

I know in my travels I have heard the terms BlueNose from Submariners, Shellback and WOG many times - must be a Navy thing. Dad was on the USS America, Grandpa was Battleships...Iowa & Missouri
