USS Jefferson City Sailors at Sea World

These little PR stunts that boats occasionally have to do are usually a pain in the butt. The crew of USS Jefferson City (SSN 759), based in San Diego, helped christen a new submarine-themed Sea World attraction, and had to stand around in their dress blues. Some of these events are OK though; for instance, when USS Pasadena (SSN 752) was stationed in San Diego, the junior officers got to go up to the Rose Parade every year to escort the Rose Princesses. That sucked not being on Pasadena...

Sometimes you get free food, though, so that's OK... and sometimes there are young ladies around who like men in uniforms...

I think that that particular memorial had been discovered by several other boats earlier...

If you want young ladies who like men in uniform, you don't have to stand on a stage in Sea World, you just have to step off your boat.
