Frog mech splains a lot about you. I got nervous every time I crewed a Frog. Something about intermeshing rotors.

I was a 6113 and "Chitter" crew chief from 76 to 86 then a 6002 AMO till retirement in 98. But hey, every Marine is an infantry man first so I guess in theory I was an 0302 ;)

So when I enlisted, the recruiter gave me my choice. Infantry, armor or artillery. I had my heart set on driving a tank. At P.I., the DI said I was the "Luckiest SOB" cuz I got all three choices. "Officialy attached to the artillery, living with the grunts, I'd get to shoot at tanks." The first time I saw one of my shells hit a tank, I was grateful for being with the Oh-5s.
