On my Grandpa’s tombstone in Fort Logan it says his name then “SHSN” then U.S. Navy then Korea. I was just wondering what SHSN meant.
An SHSN in the US Navy is person whose rating (trade or occupational specialty) is Ship’s Seviceman and whose rank is Seaman.
Naval Enlisted Ranks are
E-1 Seaman Recruit or SR
E-2 Seaman Apprentice or SA
E-3 Seaman or SN
E-4 Petty Officer Third Class PO3
E-5 Petty Officer Second Class or PO2
E-6 Petty Officer First Class or PO1
E-7 Chief Petty Officer or CPO
E-8 Senior Chief Petty Officer or SCPO
E-9 Master Chief Petty Officer or MCPO
The rating SH is one of about 60 Navy enlisted rates. A description of the job is here:
