As I review where our shipmates hail from these days, I see Ohio out in the lead. Now imagine in 2016, that all of you charter an airplane for the trip to Las Vegas!

The rest of us might have to accuse you of starting the party without us.

Let's get the message out to all near and far the 2016 Tarawa Reunion is fast approaching.

I went aboard as the first 5 Ordnance men in 1984 to 1986. I was a Ssgt at the time.

More information for a Navy guy. What is a Ssgt, Staff Sargent? (The Gunny is shaking his head right about now. Sorry Gunny, I don't know.)

You are right, Rick, Ssgt is Staff Sergeant. The normal abreviation is SSgt.

In the Corps the ordnance is divided into two seperate areas, ground and aviation. The ground guys deal with mortars and artillery along with small arms ammo to include the repair of those weapons. The aviation guys deal with the bombs and aviation based weapons.
