Note: The US Navy put no restrictions on me about what I should say or how I should present what I learned on this trip. Other than making sure my footage was cleared for Operational Security, I am free to say whatever I want about this experience.
Another note: The Navy did not ask me to provide a link to their website (or do anything for that matter), but I’m going to provide a link because I want smart people to become submariners. The US Navy continues to provide stability and security in ways no other organization on earth does. If you are interested to find out how you can join the Navy you can visit the website here:
There are tons of interesting career opportunities out there that I never knew about:
The US Navy has several options such as engineer, pilot, submariner, logistics, accountant, medical doctor, and even Public Affairs specialist. I continue to be impressed by people that I meed who spent time in the Navy. I worked with various people during the course of filming this video and they were all top notch.

Warm Regards,

  • Thank you for taking the time to watch this video. I'd also like to thank the US Navy Public Affairs Officers who helped coordinate this. After clearing the video for OPSEC, they did not limit my creativity in anyway whatsoever. I decided to make a video about the Command Structure on the submarine so we had a better foundation moving forward in the Submarine Deep Dive. This video is just the beginning! I have some incredible things to show you as a part of the deep dive. Please consider subscribing for those. I'm most grateful to people who go the extra mile and support Smarter Every Day on Patreon. It's a super big deal because it brings stability to Smarter Every Day in ways that's hard to describe. In this case, I had to buy a plane ticket to the Arctic on relatively short notice. If you'd like to become a Patron, I'd greatly appreciate it. The link is here:

Not sure if they share berthing on subs, I know they separated us on carriers. These guys are Nukes, super smart guys, have to have a high ASVAB to go to nuke school and get a nice signing bonus lol

  • I don't know why so many people dislike this vid. Maybe disgruntled ex sailors? :) I served on two surface ships during my time in the Navy, including a sub-tender, and the only sub I saw on the inside was the USS Nautilus at the Groton Sub Base (now called the Naval Sub Base New London). These sub vids provide a fascinating insight that I'm guessing that even a lot of surface sailors have no clue about. Well done!

But submarines are working with linear, simple physics. Both are extremely nice to catch in this channel. This is just to pray about every day physics which will make you smarter every day! ❤️

I know this is a submarine and it is better to be friends with everyone, but he'll forget 80% of the names in the next 3 seconds anyway. Why are you guys doing this? Why not just say "Hi" and then make friends later when you get settled in?
