Unless they come from a Navy family most of them will fall for at least one of the tricks. It's simply the fact you are so far out of your element LOL. Sky Hooks was another one.

I went through almost the same problem when I went from the Navy to Army Guards. The words Fire Mission meant nothing to me LOL.

When I was with the 3rd Marines back in the 70’s, all the boots who reported in were given the treatment. The most popular one was to tell the new boot when he asked why did some of the other Marines have a red stripe on there utility uniform. So we told them that it was for volunteering to pull butts for the Flame thrower. Told them that they would get hazardous duty pay. A few wanted to know how to volunteer, so we would tell them to go over to the HQ and see the Sgt Major. As the Sgt. Major was a former Drill Instructor, well you can imagine what that was like for the new boot.

You must have been on the nuclear-powered Shipjack class boat USS Snook (SSN-592). Correct?

I did a week's training the sonar gang on the attack boat at Andros Island. I think it was either the Shark or the Snook. Can't remember which one.

When I was on the ship the MARDET still had ships security due to our nuclear cargo. Nobody could understand a word they said when they were drilling up on the hander bay. Nobody but I reckon except a MM2 I knew who had joined the Navy after a Marine hitch. I don’t think they ever figured out where the rouge commands were coming from LOL.

I was in the Navy a long time ago, but isn't Master Chief almost always a desk job? If you wanted to actually continue doing your job, you would not accept promotion to Master Chief. I could be wrong, but that's how I remember it.

My last patrol I was MPA as a Lieutenant. I had an E7 Chief and a Master Chief in the MM division!

That should have been my easiest patrol but I remember working my tail off. The Master Chief used to go outside of maneuvering and do one armed push ups.
