eSailor, swag berthing on Zumwalt class, and new Marine cammies
So it looks like Mabus is really pushing new programs before he leaves his office as SECNAV. I have to admit, some look pretty interesting.
The new eSailor initiative is supposed to put tablets and cell phones in the hands of bluejackets down at the recruit level and up, hoping to supe up the force IT wise. Of course, there are going to be intranet issues, ITSC issues, and further electrical demands on assets, but it’s still kinda neat.
Speaking of electrical demands on assets, check out these berths on the DDG-1000 class. Four words: “our own private heads”
On the bright side, the Marines are testing new lightweight tropical boots and full digital MARPAT green cammies
