Shipmate

What is Shipmate?

Shipmate meaning Any fellow Sailor. Also, used as a derogatory term against all junior enlisted personnel i.e. E-5 and below. An Officer, Chief or First Class will use this to show they think so little of you, they haven’t bothered to take the time out of their day to learn your name. Used in the Junior Enlisted Community to parody this.
