for me, no matter how misguided it may be, or how well i know the truth, the military still holds a romantic attraction. it's a part of my heritage, and has been a formative aspect in my life. in more recent times, my interest has become more aesthetic and historical, as opposed to a possible career option. all i can really say is the navy was exactly what my dad needed and he benefited from his time served. regardless of my political beliefs, i can get behind that. and the navy still has the best looking uniforms in the world.
