    Ah yes, the joy! the fun! the aching back! “now muster a 30 hand working party on the pier with SK1 (store keeper petty officer first class) Jones for loading stores!” Been there done that, got the chiropractor bills. Not nearly as much fun as doing it underway UNREP (you ought to film one of those), fuel forward and aft, groceries and parts midships, and people and ammo on the helo spot! That’s what you call busting your butt!

    I guess AEGIS just can’t do everything.
