Ready 9, is short for Ready Room 9. Onboard an aircraft carrier, the numbered Ready Rooms are as important to the survival of a squadron’s officers as the ship itself. It is everything in the life of a squadron’s officers and aircrew: preflight planning, mission briefings, debriefings, studying, paperwork, meetings, schedule-writing, training, standing “alert” duties, drinking coffee, taking breaks, relaxing, playing cards, roll ‘ems , video games, writing home, reading, playing practical jokes, counseling, all of it! It all happens in the Ready Room, which becomes a sacred place in the life of a sea-going aviator. It is home.
