Ship Over: What the Army calls "Re-upping"; also "shipping over"
Ref
Appendix: A Short Marine Vocabulary
Marine Corps Book Of Lists...
Albert A. Nofi, 1997, Combined Publishing

~~~~~
Boot Marines, new age Marines, sometimes erroneously refer to reenlisting by the Army term "re-up," vice the correct Naval/USMC terminology "Ship Over" or "Shipping Over." Much in the same way that some Old Corps Marines once erroneously referred to their USMC "Battle jackets" as "Ike" jackets, etc.
