Shipmate is an honourable word that is earned, not given. Being called a shipmate is the highest compliment one can earn in their life. Shipmate is a word equal to none in the English language. It is filled with courage, love, hate, duty, honour and country. It is a bond forged in storms, adversity and victory; and it is equalled to by a man’s love for his wife and family. It is formed at sea in a ship with a Captain of character who causes can-do spirit to pass down the line; Captain, to Executive Officer, to Junior Officers; Chiefs, Petty Officers and Crew. – from Tin Can Man.
