Historical Overview

Ship's servicemen manage and operate shipboard retail and service activities using microcomputers. This includes ship's stores, vending machines and video games, barber shops, laundry and dry cleaning plants, and tailor shops. The 26-day SH training school is conducted at Meridian, Mississippi.

In this regard as a Navy Supply Rating, it can be considered relatable to the Army's 92 series of MOS.[2]
