"A powerful Navy we have always regarded as our proper and natural means of defense; and it has always been of defense that we have thought, never of aggression or of conquest.  But who shall tell us now what sort of Navy to build?  We shall take leave to be strong upon the seas, in the future as in the past; and there will be no thought of offense or provocation in that.  Our ships are our natural bulwarks."

Woodrow Wilson

"It was absolutely involuntary. They sank my boat."

John F. Kennedy when asked how he became a war hero


Some people live their entire lifetime and wonder if they ever made a difference to the world.... Marines don't have that problem.

President Ronald Reagan - September 23, 1983

CUTLASS – a short saber with a cut and thrust blade and a large hand guard. Issued to enlisted men as a sidearm and maintained in ships armories until the beginning of WWII. The weapon was officially declared obsolete in 1949. The Cutlass was considered an organizational issue item, but was never considered to be a part of the enlisted uniform.


RIGHT ARM RATES – established in 1841 and disestablished 2 April 1949, originally signified men of the Seaman branch. During WWII these rates included Boatswains Mate, Turret Captain, Signalman, Gunners Mate, Fire Controlman, Quartermaster, Mineman, and Torpedomans Mate. Other ratings wore rates on the left sleeve.
