Real life ensign parker

A true story from my time aboard Uhlmann DD 687

While aboard ship ... we had a division officer (R div) that was the definition of Tim Conway and Ensign Parker of McHales Navy ... it was possible ... while in port ... starboard side to.... at parade rest .. if the division would slowly rock to the right then left ... the division officer would slowly match the pace and show signs of being seasick.

This is NOT his picture but as reference to how I was able to wreak havoc with him.

Any time I found his cover "unattended" I would rotate his shield ... he was called in by XO any number of times ... yes I was asked by the XO to stop pestering the Ensign ..... I had to find something else to do
