US Navy sailors have one of the coolest job perks in the world





“Swim call” is a rare treat that can sometimes be experienced on deployments out at sea. The military tradition allows sailors to take a breather and enjoy the open ocean as their own private swimming pool. These clips show some of the swim calls enjoyed by the US Navy and Marines, including leaps from some of the top decks.

  16. I’d rather smoke be allowed to use cannabis and be around my loved ones. Also not being told what to do 24/7/365 is also a huge perk. But hey, some people will do anything to jump 20 feet into an ocean?

  24. I’m in the navy, I’ve done this before, and it’s either a rumor or a real thing that if security spots a shark they gotta shoot one of us and use that injured person as a distraction while the others escape. 🤣 sea stories and scuttlebutts can be funny
