    I am asking for your assistance in saving 241 years of Naval Heritage. On 29 Sept the Sec of Navy issued a command eliminating all rate titles in the navy. Long story short you no longer have a Boatswains mate, Quartermaster, Aviation Ordananceman, or the Corpsman. There is a petition to the white house to over ride this and reinstate all the rating titles. Most of the rates have a long and honorable history the Boatswain and Quartermaster can trace their roots back to the british navy. Overall this was done to eliminate the word man from the rating titles of a few and make them more gender neutral.
    Here is the link for the petition please sign it and verify your email afterwards and thank you if you do sign it and pass on to your friends.

    I remember going through Wog day and having to call it PolyWog day. You couldn't touch anyone, or at least not get caught. What a bunch of pussies.

    Probably go something like this

    "In regards to your deplorable, un-American petition to stop progressivism, we have noted that it does exist, although, we are unable to, at this time, reach so far up our own asses in order to find a brain, that is most assuredly nonexistent. Besides, we are driven to disregard basic biological science and common sense to placate a small minority that apparently think they are capable of being a gender other than what was given to them between their legs at birth, and also claim they are a gender that does not exist in any periodic table, dictionary, textbook, encyclopedia, or any other written text except what they concoct up in their minds. Thank you and have a nice day."


    About sums it up.

    As a retired sailor that likes history and tradition you know I signed it. I will always be an AOC (Aviation Ordnanceman Chief Petty Officer) as I am retired and all of my paper work names me as such. The new navy AO's will be A420/J100 or some such nonsense. We are flushing a part of our history that is actually older than the Navy itself as we took parts and pieces from the Royal Navy. Most of the active duty folks I talk to are not happy about this!

    Please, if you are reading this and you have not signed the petition, sign it and help us try and save part of our military heritage.

    God Bless America and all the ships at sea!

    Fuck it, I guess I went from a Nuclear Field Electronics Technician to a D110. We can all sign this petition as much as we want, but in the end it won't matter. Other petitions that reached 100,000 have been ignored and this one could easily get no response or better yet, a bullshit response. I do think that Ray Mabus is trying to be a worse Secretary of the Navy than even Josephus Daniels was though. The video "explaining" the change just seemed so awkward.

    Status update Thank you everyone for signing this and AOC thanks for the assist with the words brother. We exceeded the goal last night of 100,000 sometime last night. Now we all hope our voices don't fall on deaf ears and that this issue is addressed properly.

    Thanks all for the support, and like Law said it may not change a damn thing, but, it sure felt good to shake my fist at the CNO and the MCPON!

    Thanks. I just heard a shocking statistic today in regards to the Nuclear Officer Corps. I have heard that approximately 90% of the Nuke trained officers get out after their first tour. Man, I can't imagine the 10% that choose to stay.
