    This is one person's chronicle of life in the US Navy. The author grew up in a small town in Michigan. Part of a large family, his father's attitude was that when each child reached 16 years old, they moved out of the house. A friend was joining the Navy, so the author followed him. Boot camp, held in Florida, consisted of a lot of yelling, for no good reason. When it was time to choose the area of training the sailor would learn, the author, having no better ideas, went to yeoman school. There h This is one person's chronicle of life in the US Navy. The author grew up in a small town in Michigan. Part of a large family, his father's attitude was that when each child reached 16 years old, they moved out of the house. A friend was joining the Navy, so the author followed him. Boot camp, held in Florida, consisted of a lot of yelling, for no good reason. When it was time to choose the area of training the sailor would learn, the author, having no better ideas, went to yeoman school. There he learned to type memos the Navy Way, and otherwise entered the world of military paperwork. His first duty station was aboard a submarine tender. It followed several submarines, and acted as their supply ship. He worked directly with the ship's Commanding officer and Executive Officer, most of whom were decent, reasonable people. He compared himself to Radar O'Reilly, from the TV show MASH, taking care of the paperwork. It was not the most strenuous job in the Navy. Later in his career, he found himself doing similar work on a destroyer and an aircraft carrier. When it is time to board a ship for your tour of duty, the ship does not come to you; you go to the ship, wherever in the world it might be. The author talks about some of the places he visited in his travels. Places like Manila and Seoul very much cater to American military personnel. There are many, many bars and nightclubs, each with many beautiful young women available for one-night stands. Even the most plain-looking guy, who can't get a date back home, could have a different woman each night, if he was interested. He noticed that things are very different in places like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. He also visited Hawaii, Guam, Hong Kong, the Maldive Islands and Diego Garcia (which is little more than a giant military base). This is an interesting book that's worth reading. It's short, and is written in a very informal style.

    The book itself ws a pleasant read, reminiscent of my Navy days. However, the era he speaks of does not bode so well for those of us who served with pride in the early sixties. The CNO Admiral Zumwalt, wanted to make the Navy fun. He relaxed dress codes, allowed civilian attire on ships and for the most part drugs, race problems, and lax discipline ran away. I think this ear hurt the reputation of the Navy, considering this was the times that there were mutiny's on several aircraft carriers, on b The book itself ws a pleasant read, reminiscent of my Navy days.

I think this ear hurt the reputation of the Navy, considering this was the times that there were mutiny's on several aircraft carriers, on being the USS Constellation, my ship. I am not sure how much of the book is true and how much is "artistic license."

    The grammar in this book astounds me. Did no one proofread the manuscript?
