Tom Hastings and Jerry Radison, the two eighteen-year old lads...go through a mock registration and in this new book - are inducted into the Navy - introduced to naval customs, taboos, the intricacies of a sailor's bag and hammock, uniforms, ranks, and pay. They are treated to a short cruise abroad a destroyer, watch a bit of target practice on a cruiser, complete a tour of an airplane carrier and a floating hospital. They are assigned to a battleship and are amazed at the superb recreational programs planned by Uncle Sam for his sailors. They visit a naval aviation base and discover how to become Navy "Birds," and they are submerged in a submarine. And back in Norfolk, Virginia, they are both "honorably discharged." In brief, here is a most exciting survey of life as it is lived in every department of America's great navy, which the boys at the end of their adventure, are ready and eager to pronounce the very best in the world." 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. H1886
