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.
