The following is a father's advice to his son just moments before he
gets on the bus that will carry him off to join the Navy:

"Son, you are getting ready to embark on a great adventure as many of
the men in our family have done since your
great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather did many hundreds
of years ago.

There will be many dangers ahead that you will encounter. Remember your
training and obey your commanders, this will keep you alive during the
arduous days of battle. Always stay with the plan, if you deviate from
it you will be in grave jeopardy.

When the time of battle is over, be wary as you go into the towns and
cities ahead because there are many hidden dangers lurking there.
will be many temptations to lure you away from your brothers in arms
this could put you in danger even if it seems safe at the time. In
every town there will be a street that will be most treacherous of all
there will be strong drink to dull your senses, loud and crude songs to
suppress your hearing, and wild women of ill repute to enable your
to catch you off guard. My advice to you as a former sailor is simple

- What ever you do... FIND THAT STREET."
