I spent years on a tin can. (That’s Navy talk for a small warship). The USS Tattnall (DDG-19) and the USS Stark (FFG-31) to be exact. When I left, my sea counter was just 28 days shy of being at the 4 year mark (that’s the counter that is used for when you are attached to sea duty).
So, needless to say, I spent a lot of time aboard those Naval Warships.
And in that time, my uniforms took on a smell that was.. well.. navy? (I don’t know how else to describe it)
And what does navy smell like, you ask?
