Fleet Week 2014

Today I went to Fleet Week and meet all of the sailors. We learned different things about how they shower, medical help and we even got to tour a boat. All of these sailors had different jobs and some were harder than others. In order to work as a sailor, you need to be brave, strong and willing to do anything at any moment.I would never be able to do any of this. One man had a suit on and it weighted 125 pounds total. He went underwater to stop the bombs if there were any. On the boat, we learned about anchors, guns, how they get their water and about a man who jumped on a grenade that was coming at him to save everyone else. All of the sailors were really nice and it was great meeting them! I had a great time.
