My son is in ship 2, div 929
At first I thought it was because he played the sax in middle school but obviously not - he is a nuke! :)
thanks so much!
My son is too!!
So if your loved one is in 929 and is a nuke, does that mean they are performing? I just don't understand why the nukes are in same division as those who play or march?
No, not necessarily. It is possible that nukes have to take classes when the musicians/drill are rehearsing.
Also, nukes had to have scored higher on their ASVAB to get their job, it could be that they have the nukes in the same division to help out musicians with their academic studies or something. Musicians still have to make good grades on everything, because the rehearsals are a privilege, not just part of their division.
I've also heard that nukes sometimes get a lot of crap at boot camp from non-nukes, this just may be a way to diffuse that by putting them in with a group that has special responsibilities.
