It's an aviation's boatswain's mate. Not a glamorous job... as a young Sailor, you'll be filthy and sweaty most of the time. You'll work on the flight deck of ships, chocking and chaining helos and jets, making sure flight ops goes well. But it's one that you can do well in, and go through the ranks quickly if you choose to do so.
Good luck, even though you're now "airdale scum"! (j/k)
