ENGINEERING / SNIPES
1060 of 2985
from  1971-1971, FN-0000, Basic Electronics and Electricity School (BE&E)  album
Engineering and hull ratings. I was a Seaman during my tour in Viet-Nam. I put in a chit for IC school and when the orders came through, they had changed me from Seaman to Fireman. Too easy. The first time I took a rating or advancement test was for IC3. I passed and was advanced. However, due to an incident where I missed ships movement, for an afternoon dependents' outing, I was busted back to ICFN. A year after my discharge I joined the Naval Reserve in La Crosse Wisconsin, and when the exam came around I took it and was once again advanced to IC3. I left the Reserves before taking the IC2 exam, for a contract in Saudi Arabia with Lockheed Aircraft. Upon my return, two years later, I joined the Naval Reserve again, this time in Dubuque Iowa. But, before I was able to take the IC2 exam I decided to move to England to look for work as an expat. It didn't pan out, so I moved to Phoenix Arizona. However, this time I decided not to rejoin the Reserves. My final discharge was sent tome in the mail in 1983. Total time in the Navy: 4 years Active Duty, 4 years Naval Reserve, and six years inactive Reserves. While on Active Duty I was credited with three years of sea/foreign service. SNIPES challange coin. Clockwise starting at 12:00 is Hull Maintenance Technician, Machinist's Mate, Interior Communications Electrician, Engineman, Electrician's Mate, Machinery Repairman, Gas Turbine System Technician, Damage Controlman, and center is Boiler Technician.
