Very productive & always doing our best to protect our country.
Pros: Free health care, free food, free housing
A typical day at work is about 13 hours long, whether it be day shift or night shift. We were taught true military bearing and to resect your superiors.
I believe the hardest part of the job as a Culinary Specialist (CS) is constantly being on our feet working hard to feed about 1,200 US Navy Sailors a day. At the end of the day/night you know you reached your goal at the end of the day and always feel accomplished.
The most enjoyable part about being a US Navy Sailor is you are always surrounded by "family". What I call my "Navy Family", because being about 2,000+ miles away from home where your loved ones are is hard. So we all adapt and make friends that will last us the rest of our lives.
