(WATCH) Navy Sailors’ Coolest Perk? Jumping Off Aircraft Carriers To Swim In Ocean

October 03, 2016

In the civilian world the pest perks you can hope to get at your job are a few sick days here or there, paid vacation, and if you’re lucky maybe some free coffee to sip on while you sit in your cubicle and day dream about traveling the world. Free food and massages if you work in tech. But you’re still staring at a screen for the majority of your life.

Instead of sipping on lukewarm store-brand coffee these Sailors get to take the plunge off of the decks of some of the most powerful ships on the planet and swim in waters that may never have been tread in before.

Watch these Sailors take advantage of one of the lesser known perks of being in the U.S. Navy.
