The busiest ships, subs and squadrons — who’s really away from home the most?


Recommended Posts

The crusty salts in the Navy often say that “sailors belong on ships and ships belong at sea.”

It’s no secret that sailors are busier than ever, especially those who are on sea-duty. Still, the reality of how much time individual sailors spend away from home might surprise you.

Sailors based in Japan, for example, may not spend any more time away from their home port than sailors based on ships back home on the East and West Coasts. (But those based in Rota, Spain do.) https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2018/03/06/the-busiest-ships-subs-and-squadrons-whos-really-away-from-home-the-most/
