reBlog from Riesen2b: From The Writings Of A Sailor

United States NavyImage via Wikipedia

I found this fascinating quote today:

From 1976 until 1980 I was in the United States Navy.  I'm not tooting my own trumpet.  That's just the way it was.  I wasn't there to protect our nation, but if duty required it (and during those years, it didn't) I would have done whatever I could to protect our country.  The four years I spent serving in the military, with everything that happened, could probably make a hilarious book.  Yet, most of the time certainly contained no hilarity or even a touch of drama.  There is a lot of time in peacetime Navy to simply be bored.Riesen2b, From The Writings Of A Sailor, Feb 2010
