When the rawest of sailors enlist in the Navy, they become Seaman Recruits. They then have to complete the roughhousing of basic training in hopes of becoming a Seaman. After that, it's all up to each sailor's grit and determination as to how far he (or she) will last in the rigors of the Navy. In this salty quiz, do you think we can guess how long you served in the United States Navy?
Everyone takes a different path to the sea. Some people know from an early age that they want to explore the seven seas, wandering from port to port in an effort to travel all over the world by wind and waves. Others, like so many military types, sort of fall into service as a backup plan. Were you a dedicated sailor at birth or did you just grow into your desire to become a grimy pirate feared by men the world over?
Did you make it to Ensign? Were you a Master Chief? Or did you really hang on and make a career of the Navy so that you could become a Captain? And are you a once-in-a-generation talent, the kind that becomes an Admiral? Sail into this Navy quiz now and we’ll guess how long and salty you really are!
