Happy birthday Navy. Anchors Aweigh
Happy birthday my brethren no matter where you roam or you next port of call always remember the following::
and watch your 6
Happy Birthday U.S.N. ! And Thanks for all the (Great Ports of Call) ‘‘Olongapo City’’ Subic Bay ! Hong Kong !
Yep, Happy Birthday Shipmates. Been there - Done that from 1986 - 2006. Retired as an EM1 (EM is an Electrician’s Mate for you non sailor lingo speaking people).
If we in Canada had a Navy I would say the same.
In the Seabees we refer to a ship as having a pointy end & a bubbly end . Port is a heavy red wine ! That’s why Marines call us Dirt Sailors. Yet have a Happy Birthday you deserve it all jokes aside !
They tried to get me to take the EM rating but I loved to play center field softball which is limited on most ships. Same thing applies to a Nuke rating. I chose another rate & stayed on active duty for 26 years 3 months & 13 days so says my DD214.
