I've never seen a post like that. I find it very strange. Talk about getting reviewed. He sure is asking for it here among some real Hard Chargers.

I wonder, do all Marines claim the high ground? Perhaps, it's a Corp trait.

SCPO Morris Ramsey - Not sure if you can read this PDF link I created SAM Manpower Crunch will explain SAM Manpower Drawndown 1994 the same year I enlisted 18. Supposedly there were only 900 SAM in the whole Navy that last year it was recruited. Would not mind if you had some feeback on this report. It is very likely considering there were only 14 or so FFG that possibly allowed a billet to a SAM, that I was 1 of very few, considering that 900 SAM were distributed evenly in all units beyond the FFG. There were no other ships allowing for even a possible billet in those years but the FFG. All other SAM Billets would of been shore units.

PO3 Aaron Hassay When did the SAM Program start. When was the first FFG commissioned? Those dates would allow for many SAM recruits to have served on figs.

SCPO Morris Ramsey - 1994 when I joined there were approximately 2970 units (pg 17) of which only 14 were FFG (pg 19) . The reports also state the SAM Program was drawn down and only 900 SAMs were accounted for (pg 10). I was 1 of those. I don't know if you read the report. I never met another SAM. I met alot of USN and TAR.

PO3 Aaron Hassay The SAM Program was pretty wide spread during its short tenure. I seriously doubt you were the only one that served on an FFG. The FFG’s were around for a while, even into this century. What do you base your assertion on, have you done the research, is it available for sharing.

Senior Chief,


Please give me some insight on my research discovery. You can find the reports yourself online with google search 1994 DOD Manpower Requirement Reports.

1994 DOD Manpower Requirement Reports show the following.

900 SAM enlisted in all of Navy AD and Reserve disbursed randomly evenly I assume..aka not all placed on FFG’s of which just a few had billets open that even that possible match

The whole enlistment package was drawing down.


1994 is the years I enlisted a SAM 18 into a program the Navy was drawing down.

What kind of leadership, funding, acknowledgement, awareness would 1 assume a rare SAM would 1994 find assigned to a FFG when you are sent home for weeks in between monthly duty, with full shipboard requirement in PQS.
