BM3/E4 (Former Employee), Norfolk, VA – July 29, 2014
The most enjoyable part about the Navy was the great people you work with, traveling the world and seeing different places. The hardest part is the time of day you spend standing watch, then going straight into evolutions. I learned how to refuel cargo ships, doing evolutions with the marines. I also learned light office work and training junior sailors – more... how to stand certain watches and do maintenance. – less

I enjoyed waking up each morning knowing that everyone I worked alongside made a decision that less than 1 percent of Americans make. It motivated me and I'll always have that hardworking spirit that was instilled in me in the Navy
