What is S.N.O.B.?

S.N.O.B. meaning Shortest Nuke on Board. Term used to refer to the lucky nuke who gets out of the Navy next. This term usually only applies to nukes who have not re- enlisted (i.e. ‘first-termers’). In rare cases, the S.N.O.B. voluntarily relinquishes his/her title to a ‘second-termer’ that gets out of the Navy earlier who exhibits extreme disgruntlement and is generally accepted by the ‘first-termers’ as one of their own. This person would be given the title of ‘Honorary S.N.O.B.’
