It makes me miss the following things:

1. Long lines for tasteless food
2. Countless hours cleaning the same compartment space
3. Sleeping in a 6ft x 3 1/2ft rack (I'm 6'4") (for metric users: 1.8m x 1.06m rack and I am 1.95m tall).
4. Cold showers that had a hint of jet fuel
5. Wearing a gas mask for 4 hours in 94 degrees (34.4 C) heat (w/ 90% humidity) with the ship's ventillation shut off
6. Standing behing jet exhaust to keep cool in the 125 degree (51.6 C) weather of the Persian Gulf.
7. Working 20+ hour shifts
8. Being away from family for up to 270 days every year and a half (not including work-up cruises and shakedown periods)
9. Saluting officers that are younger than your little brother
10. Your clothes comming back from the ship's laundry more dirty than what you sent to them

Yep, someone told me to "... join the US Navy and see the world". Well, I did... and it was blue, flat and wet.

Not poking fun at you WilhelmSchulz, just poking fun at the Navy!
