A Clear Perspective
11 March 2009 | by jerryroll9094See all my reviews

Worth the watch. I'm currently an Air Traffic Controller in the USN, but also still a newbie trying to sum up my mixed feelings for my career choice. Since I haven't been on a deployment yet, I thought I'd take a look at this documentary due to the mostly positive reviews it's received. Can't say that it has influenced my decision to re-enlist or not and go on deployment, but it did give me a decent perspective and understanding of "Carrier" life. I recommend watching it, Navy sailor or not, and enjoy the unbelievable spectacle that is defined as "ship life." I've read quite a few negative comments about this documentary involving retired sailors from the 60's,70's,80's etc. And I just have to say that I'm disappointed in their, well, complaints. It seems that sailors today aren't aloud to complain about hard ships while being underway. Life is much better in the Navy than it was in the past, but that shouldn't discredit the devotion and stress it can have on sailors today. Give it a rest retirees, we know you had it rough, but don't hate us for having it slightly better.
