Entry 9Where is Admiral Burke when you need him?
Shipmate has been defined as a fellow Sailor serving on the same ship. As a Sailor in the 21st century, Shipmate has a more personal meaning. From the daily interaction of leading, learning, following, growing and sometimes lending a helpful hand, each individual has had a profound impact in my life that I wholeheartedly call them my brother/sister. Proudly serving with my brothers and sisters in the United States Navy, Shipmate means to me family.
Hat tip MTH.
