Man The Guns

There's A War Going On

ENTERING THE SERVICE

"In peacetime there were 110,000 men in the Navy; now there are over 2,500,000 . . ."

THE NAVY'S JOB

"Our Navy is fighting on every ocean in the world in the toughest war of all history.  American bluejackets must fight and sweat together to protect our shores and ships from attack, to track down the enemy on the seas and to finish the fight on his own shores.  As loyal Americans, each of us must do his share of this tough job and do it to the best of his ability."
