Life as a Sailor

Meet real Sailors & share in their experiences


Members of America's Navy face everyday challenges, perform specific duties and, invariably, they become better for it. And no matter what you think you know about the Navy, one thing is true: No two people experience the Navy the same way. Discover what it’s like to live and work in America’s Navy, from the people who serve every day. From how you’ll dress and care for yourself to how you’ll spend your free time, it’s all here.
