Join the Navy!

I’ll write more about this later, but I wanted to say that one of the delightful Chiefs we met last night was inspired to join the Navy because of Hollywood movies made when Hollywood still liked the military.

That inspired me to go hunting in the archives and to find this song from a 1955 movie, Hit the Deck.¬† Try to imagine a Hollywood movie nowadays urging it’s viewers to “Join the Navy, Join the US Navy, It’s a great life to be a gob….”

Incidentally, if you’re situated as I am, and there is no possibility that you will ever join the Navy, think about joining the Navy League, thereby supporting the Navy.
