Poll: What Was Your Navy Rating?

So, let’s see how many ratings we can cover with our first poll. (Please only take the poll once.)

For enlisted sailors: Choose your rating. If you had more than one, list the second in “Other.”

NOTE: As you know, ratings have changed quite a bit over the years. Some of these are no longer applicable, but please choose the one you were when you separated or retired. If I missed one, it was unintentional; please let add it to “Other” and I’ll fix the list!
