During my tour aboard the MIGHTY MARV, I was assigned to M-Div. in Aux Mach 1 as well as the Engine Room.I reported as an MMFA out ofA School and left an MM2. I saw the better part of 2 Western Pacific Deployments a the first of which we spent several months off of the coast of Viet Nam in support of Operation Piraz and a Yard Period in Long Beach Naval Shipyard. I was there for the introduction of EOSS, EOCC, the first Light Off Examination or LOE, and I saw Reftra twice.I was qualified for all watch stations in Aux 1, as well as all watch stations in the Engine Room up to and including Engine Room Supervisor.I was also qualified as Cold Iron and Sounding and Security Watchs.
