WearsLargeHats, My youngest Sailors instructor called them Squids. Bubblehead is definitely a Sailor nickname. Both my boys are divers and they will always be my "Squid kids"....;)))
Comment by WearsLargeHats on February 7, 2016 at 12:15am

I thought "squid" was just slang for sailor. I've heard of  "bubblehead" for submariners.

Johanna,
What a cute shirt that must be!  Never heard the "Squid" term, but I'm fairly new at this . . .

Comment by Johanna on February 6, 2016 at 9:40am
I just tell people that my boys are Squids in the Navy...the older guys always know it means Subs...;)) My fav t shirt says... Proud Mom of two Squids.

"Sub-marine-er" = American (mostly)

"Sub-mar-in-er" = British (mostly)

At our house, we use the second one, because hubs is British! :-)

Congratulations! Wonderful news!!

Comment by Cybermom on February 5, 2016 at 12:09pm

I don't post a lot but I do check in, just wanted to tell everyone my sailor got his fish and gets pinned Monday.  He got a visit from the commander to congratulate him, along with a few special tokens of appreciation, which made him happy (us too!0  And on a personal note, his sister has been accepted to Penn State, will receive a "distinguished honor roll" award from her HS, and she and her mock trial team made it to the state semi finals, first time ever the school advanced so far.  

Been a great week for our family, so proud of the kids.  What a great way to show them the value of hard work, perseverance and dedication.  

Comment by Cath Bubblehead mom on February 5, 2016 at 12:09pm

My son is very adamant it is sub-marine-er! I have not heard any veteran bubblehead call it anything else. He takes sub-mare-in-er as an insult.
