    Oh no, there is most definitely a Song of the Seabees. And I saved our Seabee selects by knowing it.

    Does "bzzz bzzzz bzzz bzzz bzzzzz" count as a song?

    Haha, oh, fair enough.

    Your situation reminded me of a story a buddy told me. Him and some other selects were asked to sing the Seabee song by their cob and they didn’t know it. They were screamed at and told to go figure it out.

    So yeah, they came back the next day and sang a made up song about Seabees! The cob just sorta muttered “uh, yeah, ok. now get the fuck out”

    Must have just been a classic case of asking for a lookup about something you don’t know shit about

    The Air Force is dividing up the cyber officers even futher:
    17SA: Offensive Ops
    17SB: Defensive Ops
    17DA: Network Support
    17DB: Expeditionary Network Support

    :(

    That seems needlessly specialized.

    Expeditionary Network Support? So an entire AFSC is just deployed now?

    I need to find some 17 series guys to explain this to me. If “Civil Engineers” don’t get our own for DIFFERENT ENGINEERS like electrical, mechanical, etc, I have a hard time seeing how this makes any sense.

    Part of the move was that the Air Force realized that they actually do need officers to get technical and that they need to stop trying to snuff out young officers' technical passions.

    But what the hell tech savvy person is going to sign up for Expeditionary Network Support? They have enough trouble retaining them as it is. I will merrily waltz on over to the private sector if they think I'll spend a decade focused on the desert.

    Yeah that's a really odd choice.

    Ours know it's a possibility to have to do that stuff but it's just one tour and then they're off to wherever.

    Also the idea of an officer focused on cyber operations being dissuaded from the technical prob is just... huh.

    Ideally it's a deployment to a pay phone in the New York subway with your custom-sprayed laptop.

    Note that the glorious Cyber Ops guys absolutely need to deploy every now and then so they can provide localized network defense (or offense) in hot spots. I didn't mean to downplay that.

    I'm done.

    Finished Chief season with a broken wrist and still had a blast.

    My feet are in horrid agony.

    There's another reason. Something I feared for years of but was ultimately inevitable: They're handing the networks to contractors so the troops can go to the desert and do more troopy things.
