    Acey Ducey on the other hand is e5/e6. Some bases have acey ducey clubs (like cuba..had a GREAT e5/e6 club).

    I think you'll find that not too many places still have an Acey Deucey club anymore. They seem to have fallen by the wayside when it comes to physical locations and only appear to exist in the cyberspace realm nowadays.

    As well as the O clubs too from what I'm gathering - I can only offer the example from the current base I'm at that the one here is open one night a week due to lack of interest...

    The bluejacket that was issued had long sleeves with a high collar with two pockets on the chest and one on each side near the waist area. I don't remember if it had a removable inner liner. It had your last name stenciled above one pocket and was used for sea duty under the old KPocs.

    I still have an old bluejacket's manual that was issued to me in boot in 1996. I found most of my stuff while going through boxes at my mom's while in AL.

    I made BJOQ around last summer on my Frigate, because I knew who the Navy's mascot was.
