Welcome aboard the USS NAUTILUS!!!
As I came from the pier, I crossed the bow and entered the welcome area for the NAUTILUS. Here I met my new friend, LS1 Thomas. At first I thought that LS1 was his first name, but he told me that it was not his name, it is actually his rate.
LS1 Thomas is a Logistics Specialist (LS) first class (1). Well, that is cool…even though I had no idea what it meant. It seems that Logistic specialists supervise the inventories of supplies and repair parts for ships, squadrons, and shore-based activities. They also purchase, receive, store, and issue (hand out) material and things needed for repairs. They can also operate Navy Post offices, as well as use accounting and database systems. I have to be honest, I don’t really understand everything they do, and I am not sure Thomas does them all, but I’m sure it’s very important! Since LS1 Thomas is a first class LS, he must really be good at what he does. One thing I do know about him is that he is super nice and really helpful! Today, he offered to give me an Audio wand, which will tell me what I’m looking at while on the NAUTILUS.
Well, are you ready? Let’s go down below…
FS1 Stanley (hehe…I wanted my own rate!)
