I am currently a Gas Turbine Systems Technician Mechanical Second Class in the United States Navy. I am trained and experienced in the maintenance and operation of gas turbine engines, generators, boilers, ac units, refrigerant units, pumps, air compressors, water distillation plants, oily waste separators, fuel and lube oil test equipment, hydraulic equipment, firefighting and damage control equipment, and equipment control consoles. Along with operating and maintaining all of the equipment, I also serve as the Main Propulsion Training Petty Officer, where I oversee and ensure proper training to 25 sailors resulting in maximum engineering reliability for the USS RALPH
JOHNSON (DDG 114).
As a GSM2 on a Navy Destroyer, I must be able to balance administrative and hands on work. On a daily basis I must schedule preventative maintenance, guide and instruct the junior sailors of my workcenter, conduct any preventive or corrective maintenance, and fulfill my watchstanding duties on duty days. I have obtained many qualifications with the highest being Propulsion and Auxiliary Control
Console(PACC) Operator. As a PACC operator, I ensure the safe and correct operation of the engineering plant. I am also qualified in roving watches which allow me to maintain a hands on experience with the
equipment and successfully troubleshoot when equipment casualties occur. While standing my watch I observed abnormal operation of equipment, and began to troubleshoot when I discovered the vital
equipment had become damaged. For this action, the ship was able to avoid a casualty that would have caused catastrophic damage to the ship and its personnel. I received a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for my attention to detail that allowed me to find the issue. I have also been qualified as a Repair Parts Petty Officer, which requires me to order, maintain, and distribute all parts for the
engineering equipment. I received my Fuel and Lube Oil Testing Certification, which taught me how to test, purify, and maintain all US Navy fuels and lube oils. As for my Damage Control qualifications, I am
the Team Leader for all damage control casualties, a vital role that ensures the safety of all personnel and primary leader in combating fires, flooding, and toxic gases.
