I have never been able to figure out what all the men in the navy do.
I can figure out the army and air force, as they pretty much run their own villages and do things with guns and planes. But the navy? What on earth can a bunch of men be doing on a ship? What are their jobs? I just imagine them knotting their kerchifs and saying "ahoy" to each other in passing. I mean seriously, only one or two of them can actually be looking out the portholes with binoculars.
OK, patriots that think I'm slamming our military, just can it. I'm not saying they don't do anything, I'm just ignorant and would like to know what they do. I didn't invite any magnetic-ribbon adorned car owners onto my blog. What are you doing here? Read elsewhere. So anyone with insight, please, enlighten me.
I know they must be patrolling the open seas for pirates. I hear those still exist. But what goes on on those ships?
