    Default Awesome Powerturn Naval Picture Aboard USS Carl Vinson

    My buddy shared this photo with me and it took me all of two seconds to submit for approval to this group. Served 5 years in the Marine Corps. Did two pumps with the 24th MEU, so this picture had me at hello. Semper Fifb_img_1606251046413.jpgpxl_20201122_170126767.jpg

    I went in to be a MR (Machinery Repairman is what the Navy calls their machinists)

    Two old grizzled E9s at book camp decided I should do this instead

    That's funny. I would have been happy as a mechanic and or machinest, but recruiter/parents convinced me to go into electronics. I spent over a year in 29 Palms to become a ground radio repairman. Ironically, I ended up doing mostly motor t/heavy equipment/etc maintenance when I deployed with the MSSG 24 maintenance platoon. Lol!
