A few of my civilian friends have asked, “What is the NArmy?” Having assumed everyone knew what the NArmy was I did not provide a definition of the word, and for that I apologize.

The NArmy is simply a word merge of the words Navy and Army. Sailors who are assigned to the Army are considered to be part of the NArmy. Sailors in the NArmy are considered ”Sailders” (Sail-jer) again a word merge of Sailor and solider.

There are currently 12,000 Sailders in the US NArmy serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and in the Horn of Africa.

Until next time: Keep your eye on a shipmate, head on a swivel and stand by to Give'em Hell! Hooah!
