And now, for our ABCs and the mystery cage monkey...
You thought you knew your ABCs? HAH! These are military ABCs and you ain't seen nothin' yet!
V had asked about Peggy's son, Corey, who is at Minot (a base at which she may end up). She said: "Is he MMT? FMT? EMT? PMT? MHT?"
My ever-intelligent response was: HUH?? (of course I dashed off a note to Peggy!)
V had also shared that she is a Missle Monkey and a CageGirl... SQWEH??? This is her response:
MMT- Missile Maintenance Technician, Missile Monkeys
FMT- Facilities Maintenance Technician, Janitors
EMT- Electrical Maintenance Technician, Sparkchasers
PMT- Honestly, i don't have a clue who they are.
MHT- Missile Handling Technician, no known nickname.
The nicknames are all in good fun. No one gets 'bent' over them.
But Wait. It gets better... she writes:
Each MMT dispatch team goes with 5 people in it. A Team Chief, two Topsiders, a Cageman, and a Boardman.
Team Chief is the senior Ranking member of the team.
Topsiders are usually the heftier people on the team, the larger ones.
Boardman is the tallest of them all.
And the Cageman is the smallest, lightest, and best memory.
So there you have it. I am the proudest Cage Monkey's Mom ever!!!
