21 Photos Show What The US Navy And The Marine Corps Do For Fun In The Ocean

“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.
