"I had just turned 18 when I joined, so that start of my Navy career signaled the abrupt end of my adolescence. From boot camp to the final flag salute, walking off the ship to restart your civilian live, you were expected to be responsible, diligent, tenacious, dedicated and ready and willing to do whatever it takes. When you live in a steel bucket floating in the middle of the vast Atlantic, no one can afford to be anything less because it's a long swim home."
