being and Abh in the NAVY

ha ha. all these responses i have read are dumb a shit. being a ABH i nteh Navy is ok. its dangerous and fun. i work 12 hours a day. depensind on how many people are in your shop you miht work 12 of those hours or 1. its mad easy and if you study enough, you will make rank. yes you will be out in the 125 degree sunshine or in the -10 degree cold. i like it thouh. you start off os a blue shirt chocking and chaining jets then you move to elevator operator which is indoors, nice and warm, no physical work at all. after that you go to tractor dirver, which is sitting on a tractor and towing jets. verry fucking easy. after that you o yellow shirt, much harder. this i where you actually direct jets around a very crowded fliht deck.best job in teh NAVY if you ask me. i love it. my office is the size of the empire state building on its side. HOOYAAH
