    Pros

    Travel, pay, training, camaraderie, and doing meaningful work

    Cons

    Long work days if on sea duty. Leave family, and personal life for days-months at a time. Different rates promote faster in shorter amount of time based off of manning alone. Politics is rampant. Possible life log physical or mental disability in result to job exposure. Becoming more and more lax as the new waves of sailors enter in

    Don't falter for society, keep the navy mentally and physically strong. Keep old traditions.
