   Military Vets Looking for a Job?

 

July 2006 Mile-High Maiden™

Life on an aircraft carrier can be exciting but also very dangerous, especially for those working the flight deck.  Flight operations are  choreographed as well as a New York ballet, and as in a ballet, each person has a specific role to play. While certain safety equipment is worn in common, each player has his own costume, as it were, designating the different jobs on the flight deck. See below.

As   part   of   the  team  managing flight operations on the carrier, personnel  must wear the proper flight deck uniform. All personnel must wear a cranial- impact  helmet  with liner,  goggles,  and  sound attenuators. Personnel who   work   on   the flight   deck  must   also   wear   long   sleeve   jerseys and trousers, flight deck shoes, an inflatable life preserver outfitted with distress light marker, sea dye marker, and a  secured whistle.  Notice the different colors identifying different assignments or jobs.”

Jersey Colors

RED: Ordnancemen, repair parties and fire fighters.

BLUE: Aircraft handling, chockman, and elevator operators.

GREEN: Aircraft maintenance men.

YELLOW: Aircraft movement directors and catapult officers.

BROWN: Plane captains.

PURPLE: Fuelers who refuel aircraft between missions.

WHITE : Other (medical team, air wing LSOs, sighting teams, safety personnel, and visitors).

With the advent of women in combat roles is it any surprise that fashion has become a powerful consideration in all things military? The currently proposed changes in flight-deck attire reflect this new reality. As a good example, check out what the new ordnancemen will be wearing....

It’s true...

 The Universe started with the Big Bang.

And the Big Bang came from a singularity.

But just what, exactly, is a singularity?

The surprising answer is mind-blowingly simple.

And enormously transformative.

It is, in fact, the ultimate proof of God.
