Since The Department of The Navy (the paperwork is sent through them), and no one else seems to have the answers I’ll try here.
Are uniforms issued, or do I go out, and buy my own cloths?
Does everyone provide their own detergent to wash cloths, or is there someone on the ship who does it for everyone?
Are full beards (when my beard sizzles, and makes that horrible smell I know I’m too close) acceptable?
What should I be doing to prepare to go to sea?
What will my work day normally be like?
Is there anything else I should be concerned about?
