Do most people in the navy hate it?

So I just finished watching the PBS special 'carrier' and they interviewed a lot of people on the ship and it seems no one really liked it. I mean they liked the liberty but other than that no. Almost every person that they interviewed ended up separating from the navy. Is this the case throughout the navy? Or was the show just being negative?

I don't think "most" hate it. One thing you'll find ubiquitous among service personnel is their propensity to complain... More

I think its what you make of it. If you go in with a good attitude most likely it will be better for you. You have to take advantage of the opportunies. Also I think a lot of those kids just graduated high school and never worked a day of hard work in their life so they just aren't used to it.

The show was being very negative! It was the "media" and they screened the crew for all the problem children so they could make it dramatic. No different from all these reality shows That show was filmed on the Nimitz while I was stationed there. They came to my division looking for people to interview so I figured... More

unless you are a pilot, being in the Navy consists of cleaning, drilling, eating and sleeping. Boring as hell.

The Navy is what you make of it. A lot of times kids who join really don't understand the concept of "work." They think pulling an 8 hour shift at Burger King was the limit of human endurance... More

Yes I caught some of that series 'Carrier' on one of the Discovery Channels here in the UK. It looked like a quite tedious lifestyle, and the American Sailors were even envious of the Australian Sailors who like the British Royal Navy are allowed two cans of lager a day aboard ship.

If MOST people in the U.S. Navy 'hate it' why is the retention in the U.S. Navy so high? Answer THAT one. By the way, didn't you know that PBS is run by a bunch of inbred LIBERALS? (USN, retired 1965 - 85)
