Hey Mom, I think it would be cool to be in the Navy when I grow up. Just like Dad.
Okay, Son. But, you will have to brush your teeth and shave and get up very early every single day, and you might have to go weeks or months or years without seeing your beautiful family. You'll probably have to move every couple of years, too.
Oh, and you'll have to cut off all your hair.
Swim away! Swim away!
*Disclaimer* I am obviously very grateful for the Navy and for all who work in it for many, many reasons. Not least of witch is that it provides for me and my family and allows us to live in Italy.
