A Little Humor: Join the Navy And See The World


While catching some sun and fresh air on the catwalk just off the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk during a break in combat air operations during the Vietnam War, I began talking to another young sailor.

“Just like the old enlistment advertisement said, I joined the Navy to see the world,” the seaman told me.

Being a somewhat arrogant and vain young man, I replied drolly, “I joined the Navy so the world could see me.”
