The shellback Ceremony is nothing to be proud of. It's hazing that is supported by the chain of command. But I did it because I was young and dumb but I never participated when I was the shellback dealing with the new wogs.

It was a lot rougher with all kinds of crap happening during the ceremony.when I was in.
I never crossed the Equator so I didn't have to do it,thank goodness.

You would be a polliwog until you became a shellback when initiated.
