As a former merchant mariner, the navy is a terrible choice. Something goes wrong on a ship....say a kitchen fire, it can be a disaster for everyone. Hell just a small collision on a navy vessel could result in deaths. Y'all are packed in like fucking sardines. At least the tanker I was on we all got our own cabins. Navy guys and gals typically share quarters with 3-30 people, even officer. Maritime life, even for the guys not really doin shit is a damned dangerous one. Heavy seas and an old ship could result in a cracked keel in the middle of the night, and then everyone is scrambling for their gumby suits and escape corridors. Wise choice would be to get involved with Navair and get a nice safe job at an air station. Get lucky and youll find yourself at Dahlgren or Pax River where they test all the fun top secret stuff! Overall, at least in the navy you get to see the world and the most spectacular night skies only a select few humans on this planet get the chance to see.

During my visit to the Musee du Debarquement in Arromanches in August 20st 2014, I met this vet. I'm not sure but I think he had belonged to the 56th British Infantry Brigade.
