Then there are people everywhere--green-shirted maintenance techs maintaining aircraft, yellow-shirted aircraft handlers, red-shirted ammo handlers (aka beebee stackers) and firefighters, cami-clad Marines, and all of the rest of the coveralled sailors that handle the run-the-ship business. (Heh--one day, one of the maintenance guys and one of the handlers were sitting side by side in the Mess at dinner. They looked like a pair of M&Ms.)

More later, perhaps.
