What do the classifications of crew members that have a "GM" after their name mean?

Same question for "SC"

Thanks,

Dick Listro

Dick,

Pretty sure "GM" stands for Gunner's Mate, don't know offhand what "SC" means.

Dick;
SC means Ships Cook, GM is Gunners Mate, MoMM is Motor Machinist Mate, RM is Radioman, QM is Quartermaster, BM is Boatswain Mate, EN is Engineman, Carp is Carpenters Mate, S is Seaman, F is Fireman.
Take care,
TED

Hi Ted,
There was no EN rate during WW2. The old Motor Machinists Mates were turned into EN's sometimes in the early 1950's. Me being a Machinist's Mate wondered what happened to all those MoMM's after the war. I guess the Navy figured Motors can either be gas or diesel and the new rate of EN = Engineman would handle both types of Internal Combustion Engines.

I noticed on the listing of men and boats for the Ron 27 that a few enlisted men were listed as "COX". Does anybody know what their function was?
