ATTENTION ALL NAVY RETIREES. Those of you who miss slop on a shingle or its equivalent and whose legs have never quite gotten use to the lack of roll associated with being ashore, the Navy has some openings for a few good men.

In the process of reactivating the battleship Wisconsin, the U.S. Navy wants to reactivate some experienced sailors - perhaps as many as 200 - for a two-year hitch to serve as the nucleus crew to train younger sailors in operating the World War II vintage battleship.The Navy is seeking people with such battleship skills as boiler technician, engineman, hull technician, interior communications electrician, machinist's mate, machinery repairman and operations specialists.
