That's one reason I started posting the original documents
Back in the Blue Arizona Flame wars we had a bunch of people who felt that their 1980s Naval service meant that they could speak authoritatively as to how the Navy handled paint and camouflage in the 1940s. Fine. Read the original source documents
and argue with them if you disagree.
Ok, this is kinda off topic but military related. Has anyone else been told "You were never in the military so you don't know." My father is constantly saying this to me. To him, the Arizona was just gray on December 7th, Splinter Camouflage never existed in the US Navy, or any other navy for that matter, and America still has a dedicated training carrier. Regardless of evidence, "they don't know, I do, I WAS IN THE NAVY!" is his common reply.
