There is nothing glamorous about war! If I had to choose one word to describe war, it would be BORING. War is a LOT of waiting. During WWII in the Navy you did the same routine day after day after day until you did your routine like a bunch of zombies.-from 'Life Aboard the Sara During WW II' by Vern BluhmFrom World War II through Operation Desert Storm, American Sailor: More Adventures To Go With The Job tells exciting stories of a sailor’s life at sea during war and peace. Compiled from the experiences of author Donald Johnson and other U.S. Navy sailors, American Sailor delivers a fascinating glimpse into the everyday exploits of men at sea.Johnson includes riveting accounts of ship collisions, port calls, sailor humor, and personal experiences from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Middle East. Patriotic stories, stories from Navy Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, and tributes are also included.With such adventures as the Battle of Guadalcanal and the Battle of Okinawa as seen through the eyes of a sailor on the USS Saratoga and those of a naval intelligence specialist in Operation Desert Storm, American Sailor demonstrates the uniqueness of life in the Navy. 3
