DRT - A Dead Reckoning Tracer used by Navy ships to track the true course (path) of a ship. We normally kept this piece of equipment turned off and only turned it on whenever there was a man overboard. It would plot the true course of a ship as it maneuvered to get as close to where the man fell into the water even when we could not see the man.

YP - Yard Patrol craft that is used by the Navy to train future officers in seamanship, navigation and maneuvering. And when we took these small boats out into the ocean, it taught us about sea sickness.

USO - also known as the United Service Organizations. They are a private, non-profit civilian organization that helps entertain military personnel far from home, provides military personnel a place to relax away from home, and offers other forms of support to members of the military and their families.
My most memorable experience was attending a Bob Hope show courtesy of the USO.
