    I am in need of some help with a gift for my father. He was in the Navy a bunch of years ago. He received, as I assume all in the military do, a book he calls a Blue Jacket's Manual. He kept his when he was discharged, but over the years it has disappeared. He has missed having it around for a very long time. I have searched for a copy of it for about two years now and can find nothing. I know that there are a few members here that are in the military. I was hoping that one of you would be able to help me.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    They seem to do it on Amazon - not sure if it's the same thing or not though!

    hey, man...i'm a first class missile technician in the navy (submarines), and i've got a BJM or three lying around...i'd be glad to hook up a shipmate. they change every so often, the wording of the general orders, et al, but it's essentially the same book as it has always been.

    Now that you mention it, I was in the Marines 35 years ago, and seem to have lost my hand grenades. Anyone?

    Well I've got some explosives sort of 'sitting around' but I need all of them. Sorry.

    My in-laws have a tree farm that was harvested recently. They were complaining about not being able to replant until they get rid of all the stumps of the old trees.

    Heh heh heh:ninja: :bag: BOOM! :smug:

    Well that was a pretty unimpressive explosion. How do I changge font size?
