Original Starting post for this thread:
As some of you know, I am writing a science fiction book and am trying to make it seem as real as possible. Mostly small things that add up.

I have my characters in a ship and I understand most of the labeling which occurs with compartments. Every floor above 1 or main deck is a level 01,02,03,ect. Starbord of the keel is odd, while port is even numbers. Every compartment frame number relates to the first frame of the carpartment. I even understand most desinations like L is for living spaces.

My questions are would the sick bay be an L or Q? Would the hanger/flight decks be C, E, or M? would armories for small arms be M or Q? I am hoping some former navy/marines would be able to answer these questions.

rdy2playwu - I am sure there are several slang terms for it. Probably depends on your division! I know my father had many names for different parts of the boat. I know he did for the people LOL

Here you go... now you should have all your answers. :-)

The Hangar deck is labeled the #1 deck of the ship; lower decks are numbered 2,3, etc. downward, while decks above the Hangar deck are numbered O-1, O-2, etc, upward. (The Flight deck is typically deck O-3.)

Just wanted to feel the power between my legs!!!

It doesn't have a designation.. it's the flight deck.. Deck and whatever other slang you find.

"But I can tell you if you want the section on a B-52 that carries the NUKEs."

Does the thought of Frank being anywhere around NUKEs send chills up anyone else's spine? And why am I having visions of Slim Pickens riding to Armageddon waving a Twinkie in one hand and a Coors Light in the other?

Thanks, most of my unanswered questions now have answers to them... Still looking for the hanger bay letter designation... Because the hanger stores the aircraft, I am thinking that it could be considered storage?

Navy BMR Study Guide should familiarize you with a lot of things.
