Thank the beer haze for clearing my thoughts.... We have had a thread "Where would you serve in WW 2 for some time now. This thread starts a new idea off that one. You are serving in your chosen position in WW 2. Share your experiances doing this with us. I'll start: I'm a Chief Electrician's mate aboard the USS Astoria. We are in port today, September 4 1939. There are a number of manitenance problems E-Division is working on. Nothing serious, just routine stuff. The big job is getting #2 Main Condensate Pump out of two main. It burned up yesterday. It will have to be rebuilt.
