This is not a post to flame anyone or another service. I am just curious to hear some experiences of others that have worked in the joint environment. What were some of the things that you were like wow that really works well or hell that is messed up! Thanks

I only had one experience serving in a joint environment, and it was a bonus because it was joint/combined at RAF Menwith Hill in North Yorkshire, England. It was a fantastic assignment and I learned quite a bit from the US Air Force, Marines and Navy personnel stationed there, along with the RAF folks. The experience definitely made me a much more rounded NCO (although since retirement I've gotten even MORE round! LOL!)

Working with a team that had both myself, and senior enlisted Navy and AF guys in it and have someone walk in and say "Hey Chief..." and see 5 different guys turn around.

Senior Chief, I love working on JBAB. I couldn't have asked for a better assignment. I literally work with all the branching including a few Coast Guardsman. I believe there are two here I have seen and met. I have learned a lot about the ranks/rates and also the different customs. I was surprised to find out that Females in the Air Force can where earrings in their ACU's. I learned that most Seamen don't stand at parade rest when talking to senior enlisted just to name a few.
I think it would be beneficial for all the service members to at least intermingle once in there career.
