VA 95 Green Lizards Aviation Ordnancemen

aviation ordnance rate

Aviation ordnancemen are aircraft armament (weapons) specialists in charge of storing, servicing, inspecting and handling of all types of weapons and ammunition carried on Navy aircraft. What can ya say! Ya sometimes got to wonder how any of them ever passed the ASVAB test, but I loved working with our BB stackers. A great bunch of guys to know, work and live with. I'm proud to say that I'm still good friends with the ordies I served with over 15 years ago. God Bless those red shirts for yesterday, today and tomorrow!.
