“Swim Calls” are one of the few drills sailors aboard US military ships can truly enjoy. It gives them the opportunity to do the things they may have missed doing when they were kids. It also helps them get through the loneliness they are facing everyday for being away from their loved ones.
For these sailors, the world is a big swimming pool. It doesn’t matter where they are; there is always a huge body of water to jump into. They can have a few laps of swimming in the Pacific or dive into the warm saline waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
Check out these pictures from the United States Navy, showing how they do things for fun in the water all around the world.
People may think these guys are just training in a large swimming pool.
Or having a good time in a flooded abandoned ship.
But these guys are actually in the middle of the ocean.
Who needs a pool…
When you got the entire ocean to yourself.
Imagine swimming with your comrades in the Arabian Sea…
With your boss as your lifeguard.
Wouldn’t that be awesome?
Here, they are seen jumping from the mighty aircraft carrier – USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.
These sailors don’t really care how big the ship is…
They just want to have some fun.
Who can blame them?
They got the best diving boards in the world.
I’m pretty sure these guys miss their family at home.
But I’m also pretty confident that they would miss this kind of fun.
This is one way for them to forget about their job for a while.
They deserve to have this kind of enjoyment.
Would you agree?
