Organizational clothing is supposed to stay with the command not be given to a person forever. I think a better tactic would be a special uniform allowance, but thatís probably a bigger pain to do.

I totally nicked my foul weather coat from the E though when it was decommissioning.

Apparently after I left, there may have been a 1100 ft Cat5 from Fwd to Aft in the yards when no one was looking. I will neither confirm nor deny smaller runs so that certain officers and enlisted could play CoD lan games.

This reminds me of the time(s) we used unsecured access points (e.g.; a laptop on the weather decks) to pass files with foreign partners real time during multinational exercises while in (very close) formation because they didn't have any at-sea connectivity. :v:

Go from a 4 day response in the Indo-Pacific to 4+ weeks, with the assumption you can get the crew to fill the billets.

All sorts of issues with it. Dumping anything on MARAD who is chronically underfunded and a poor steward of the merchant marine is a recipe for disaster. It fucks up timelines and funds, and losing jobs means losing more mariners. Of course, those jobs were always hard to fill because they paid poorly but thats another argument.

My 4 weeks is a rosy assessment compared to others that are putting it at more like 6-8.

I went on mission after the Henry fire when I was on the Hudson. We got out on time and up to AK to pick up guard vehicles, then it was down to Mississippi for training. All that still took a month with everything going perfectly and everyone up for two weeks straight because we couldn't get any support until the very minute the vessel left MARAD and went under Navy budget.

Instead of Iota rocking out itís an IT3 shibariíd in network cable with a laptop in front of the salvaged top of a cell tower.
