WIP: CBM Sharkey McNair…
"While many of the other gobs head down the gangway when liberty call happens and the boat puts into dock, Chief McNair, recently has changed from being one of those heading down the gangway to "staying onboard".
The CBM for the USS Galveston, "Chief Sharkey" as he's known by everyone on board, is content to spend time in his rack, listening to Artie Shaw, or a good ball game on the radio, and running crap games on payday behind Turret #2.
With his USN Anchor tattoo which is almost a requirement of his rate and rating on one arm, and a heart with "Mom" on the other, Chief Sharkey makes sure that things are tip top and ship shape on the Galveston.
He also holds the ship record for getting the most perfumed letters sent to one person, (Over 2 dozen each mail call.)
The old saying that "A sailor's got a gal in every port." rings especially true with Chief Sharkey.
Whether the gal happens to be married or not makes no big difference to him…" wink

Wow! The powdered eggs were runny, the toast was burnt, a ball bearing wouldn't float on top of his coffee, and the galley was out of beans!!
