If you check the website, you'll see some notes on the "ships" - all the buildings on the RTC are named in honor of floating vessels - some are historic, some are still in service.

Barracks are "ships", the bays are "compartments" and the beds are "racks", in addition we have quarter decks, grinders and similar areas.

Because of the significant construction and rebuilding on the base, we've had the honor several times of being the first or only non-Naval group to use the ships. Some years have had multiple ships requesting we stay there on board, so we've been on more than one during the encampment.

IN the last few years we've stayed on one ship for the duration and been able to leave the compartments setup and secured mid-week.

Since 2003 we've been on on the:

U.S.S. Constitution (twice)

U.S.S. Triton (twice)

U.S.S. Arizona

U.S.S. Enterprise

As to staff positions, they were filled a month or more ago, however we still need TAC officers.  The general description of all the positions can be found on the encampment web page:
