    K Since Marines are part of the navy, do you guys spend time on ships often?

    or even at all?

    hope not, i get sea sick haha

    Every navy ship I've ever been on had Marines on it. I think the ratio is 1 Marine to 20 Sailors. Any more and the Marines start to develop blisters on their cocks.

    depends on the type of ship and the mission of said ship.

    A Sub tender isn't likely to have a detachment of Marines, however a Carrier will have a full detachment

    if u get attatched to a MEU, yes you will be on a ship. i imagine if u do anything with aircraft, its highly possible as well.

    I was on a sub tender in Holy Loch, Scotland that had some very serious Marines pulling duty on it. They made sure that nobody looked in the open silo tubes on the sub. :noes:

    Boomers are different than Fast boats.

    a Tender providing support for a Boomer will have a lot of different stuff than a Tender providing support for a Fast boat.

    you shoulda held up with not being a rocket scientist.

    You might've missed the part where it was mentioned that a Carrier will have a full detachment of Marines, I don't remember the last time a Carrier landed on the beach:hsugh:.

    There are a lot of ships that can and often will take Marine detachments, being an Amphib unit is not a requirement for hauling Marines.

    Marines are on ships, yes...but not all of them.

    They are found most often on Amphibious ships, like LHA's, LSD's, and LCU's.

    I am a Marine and I have done some time on a few carriers. I know F/A-18's deploy to the carriers as well as land bases.

    Years ago THE USMC had Sea Duty Billets. Running around pulling gaurd on ship & that type of shit. Had a buddy pull that duty. It sucked. That was also during the time whem most Naval Installations had "Marine Barracks" pulling gaurd duty for the squids. That bullshit is over, and for the most part so is the professionalism on most Naval Installations. :squint:
