Hey everyone. I’m A03 Cortez and welcome aboard the USS Wasp. I’m going to show you where I work, where I live and where I play. This is my navy life, so let’s go. Hey guys welcome to my shop. This is where I work. Come in. So in my shop I work on some pretty cool stuff, from 20 to 25 millimeter machine guns to rocket launchers. This is the cross, a common rack launcher test set. It tests out bomb racks, rocket launchers. It says go or no go, and then if it says go we’ll send it up to the flight deck, where they loaded up the jets with the helos and then load of bombs or missiles So this is the mess decks. Out to see we have about 3,000 people on board including navy and marine personnel. I’m about to get off my shift so let’s head out. So before we head out of base I want to show you guys some of the cool recreational facilities as Navy personnel that we get to use. This is Iowa Point, the marina where you get to run out kayaks and sail boats. Across the street we have the golf course and we have the bowling alley then we have the gym. It’s free. It’s a state of the art gym. We have the pool and then we have racket courts, basketball courts, and of course your way to your treadmills. Those are a few of the many things that we get to utilize this day personnel but the weekend started so let’s go. Hey. Welcome to my house come on in. There is a perception of the Navy’s that people on the ship are always just going to be on the ship but outside the ship I have my own life of course as you can see this is where I am at when we’re in port. This is where we have our pictures. We have our video games and our TV
and that is my roommate. I usually just go like this. This is my kitchen. I’m about to cook some fajitas, so I’ll meet you guys tomorrow at the beach. Hey guys you saw where I work and where I live. Now, this Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Me and my surf club meet up here every Wednesday’s and Saturday’s just catch some waves. The Navy offers you a cool place to live, and this is just one of them. So let’s go catch some waves. Obviously not every day is a good day, so I’m gonna go meet up with my friends at the Navy Beach for an awesome BBQ. We just finished up surfing. Now we’re over here at the Navy private beach called Damn Neck. Me and my friends are about to enjoy awesome BBQ, so I’m about a head over and just eat and go swimming. So you saw my work, where I live and we’re at play. I don’t just spend my time on the ship. I also have my free time too. Butt now I want to go spend time with my friends, so you’re gonna have to go.
