    I've been retired for 12 years and we did not have women onboard during my time. I believe it has been with in the last 5 or six years and then it was only officers. I'm not sure of the current status, but as officers they could be afforded some privacy in a 3 person state room. I have been underway with a female shipyard worker of some higher rank, and she took the XO stateroom for the week she was onboard. I was always on fast attack boats, which are smaller than the ballistic missile subs, so maybe the bigger boats were an easier adjustment.
    As far as "nukes" we carried, I can't tell you about any of that. "Nuke" is the nickname they give to the ratings that are responsible for operating and maintaining the nuclear propulsion plants on American submarines and carriers.

    Tom Clancy and those movies make sub life seem a lot more glamorous than it is. "The Hunt for Red October" made sonar technicians think they were cool and submarine warfare look like an aerial dogfight, neither of which is accurate. "Das Boot" is the goat sub movie, but modern boats are much more comfy.
    Some training time and in my civilian persona as someone who repairs those underwater behemoths.

    Lol you're a Marine, right? Because that is has to be a universal trait.

    To get hired for CIF manager:

    Are you a complete dickhead? Yes? You're considered.

    I understand, but it is really no big secret. You will find plenty of 'classified' information on the internet these days. I know enough about nuclear missiles on U.S. submarines and submarine nuclear propulsion system. Heck, there is enough information out there on how to build an atomic bomb (not a thermonuclear one). Getting the Uranium-235 or Plutonium-239 is the hard part. But than again, 'black markets' in Russia and Pakistan might just sell the stuff to the highest bitter.

    I remember working at USSOUTHCOM with a classified and unclassified computer. It was amazing when I Googled information on the unclassified computer and it brought up classified information.

    Yeah. They are bonified 'dick-heads'.
    I remember turning in my TA-50 and MILES gear at the end of IOBC (Infantry Officer Basic Course) in 1992 at Ft. Benning, GA - U.S. Army. They were infamous for giving 2nd Lieutenants shit. You could not have one grain of dirt in any of the equipment. Things got so bad, with so many complaints, that a Lieutenant Colonel (O-5) went through the line wearing a 2nd Lieutenant (O-1) uniform to see for himself how bad things were. Well, he was not happy with the results of what he saw the CIF folks doing. Needles to say, things changed overnight.

    when I left Germany, our unit got disbanded and the base all but essentially closed
    CIF took like literally everything, we even had to turn in used Eye Pro ffs. The only positive was they weren't that crazy about it being spotless at that pt

    well if you were in when they switched from BDUs/DCUs to whatever the Air Force shit is called, or when the Army went to ACUs then now Multicam, or Marines to Marpat.

    My unit got issued Multicam for Afghanistan in Dec 2010, AFAIK we were the first to ever wear it, we had to turn all that stuff back in when we got back though. Ruck sacks, combat assault bags, body armor, was all specially issued in Multicam

    Damn. I didn’t turn any of my shit in. I can understand body armor and stuff like that. But packs, sleeping bag, uniforms I kept all that.

    they only did b/c the whole base essentially shut down for like 6 months until a unit came in from Bamberg, Germany.

    I turned in everything except tan undershirts, boots, ACUs, and the combat mesh shirts that were multicam colored

    Sleeping bag, ruck, assault pack, E-Tool, everything else had to get turned in. It was crazy

    well except for 30 round magazines hahaha

    same here. USAF couldnt be assed to take gear from us when we transitioned out. I still have a deployment bag with my CIRAS carrier, MICH, half my chem gear and an obnoxious amount of dated ALICE gear shit we used to do exercises in. I also currently still have my near worthless ACOG i was issued in 2003, whose tritium finally died in 2009, has so many scratches on the lenses that its opaque and looks like its a step away from being nickel plated. When they were issuing the M68 to everyone i asked if they needed it back and the chick at LRS laughed and said hell naw. i kept it but i cant get it repaired by Trijicon because im sure they got the serial number tagged as GP and would fry my ass legally.
