Sweet Work At a Sweet Duty Station

That would be the old Navy rate of Photographer's Mate, which used to be taught at NAS Pensacola, Florida.

The US Navy is celebrating its 100th year of Naval Photography, and this Stars and Stripes story looks back at the history.

The Photographer's Mate school at Pensacola was in high demand always, a fun job with civilian applications for after the Navy career was over, at one of the nicer US Naval facilities.
