Navy Life

Navy life is a demanding life. It calls for complete loyalty and dedication and for a great measure of selflessness. It involves pleasant assignments and those that are not so pleasant; but every billet you fill can be an opportunity for gain for the Navy, your shipmates, and yourself. A person must be mature and observant to always see these opportunities, but they are there. At times it can be a dangerous life. Danger is inherent in an armed service and particularly a service with worldwide commitments. But for the person with a desire to serve country and oneself in a variety of interesting and challenging ways, it is a stimulating, satisfying way of life.
