Look at the bow of this ship dipping into the waves. It must have been interesting to be in the real Navy. The sailors on a carrier were not considered to be in the real Navy because the ship very rarely dipped this deep, but I did see it happen in a typhoon. The real sailors served on the tin cans, as they were called. I wish I could have made a cruise on one of these smaller ships to see what it was really like myself. But we were in the Navy too, even on a carrier. We were the primary target for any enemy wherever we were. When we went into a foreign port, the tin cans went into port and the carrier anchored way out to sea with divers under the ship 24/7.

The square thing on top of the picture is the bottom of a aircraft elevator which brings the planes from the hanger deck to the flight deck.
