“Life at sea is full of challenges and immense satisfaction”. While you are at sea, the Navy looks after the welfare of your family like its own.”
Whether on a ship or submarine, Sailors are provided with sufficient living spaces. Each Sailor is assigned a “berthing area,” which includes a locker for storage, as well as a “rack” for sleep. The cooks in the kitchen (galleys) constantly prepare food for hundreds of men. There are dining halls for the men to dine. Mess decks are not just areas to sleep, but are also for recreation – Sailors and Officers can kick back and watch television or play games.
