I just noticed that the Army has a Sea Duty Ribbon.

Can anyone tell me why and what MOS's would be at sea? This doesn't make sense to me.

Also, back in the late 80s & early 90s there were Army Aviators flying OH-58Ds off of Navy ships in the gulf. They and their ground crews qual for that service ribbon.

I was just a dumb grunt. I honestly had no idea the Army could also be at sea.
