    SM2(SW) reporting for muster.

    Crossed for the first time in 2000 on the way to RIO USS Estocin FFG-15 second time in 2002 on a west pack on USS Ingerham FFG-61.

    So does it count if you were in the Corps attached to a amphibious battalion on a 6 month cruise and crossed the equator?

    Only if you participated in the ceremony and became a Shellback. A lot of Marines are also Shellbacks.
