In the NAVY

I was looking for marine weather sites and found this..

Life in the NAVY is sweet. And not a single picture of latrine cleaning.

Hmm, this would make a really nice woodblock print.

Oooh, this is interesting: NAVY has a special set of ranks for photographers: “Photographer’s Mate 1st Class”, “Photographer’s Mate 2nd Class”, “Photographer’s Mate 3rd Class”. Hmm, I wonder how they earn promotions.

Here’s how. By taking exams!

Iiinteresting. Their insignia used to consist of a view camera,
, but now now is this: (an enlarger?).

I really need some good military uniform and insignia books. Online resources suck.
