Navy - Least Respected Service? I don't think so.

"Have an exhalted pride in the uniform you wear and all that it represents. Wear it correctly; wear it proudly. Salute it with respect when you meet it; behave in it in a seemly manner when you wear it; protect it when it is offended or in danger. It represents the fleet, the nation, your home, and your family. It is a symbol of all that is dear to you and all that men are willing to die for."

NAVPERS 16138-A (Restricted)
December 1948

The picture? It says it all. You can take it to the bank. Spotless shiny didn't do no fighting, no suffering, no dying, no killing, perfect white uniforms.
Ah, they are a navy school's dream. Every CPO aspires to sailors just like those in the pic.

You can kind of tell who picks the Navy's official photos can't you? What do you say Master Chief? Good enough for you?
