The experience of working in the U.S. Navy varies for every member depending on their rate (job), rank, gender etc. There are lots of great times and experiences being a U.S. Navy Sailor, and there are a lot of trying times as well. The one thing that you may, or may not notice is how the Navy changes you for the better. The skills, camaraderie, and work ethic you build in the Navy is unparalleled and more often than not, you'll leave the Navy a better person.
