Navy in the Navy

suggests 'Navy blue'


Sometimes I simply can't believe that I wore a uniform
And in the Navy sailed away to sea!
It seems so long ago that it's like another world,
And the pictured girl is quite another me.
My uniform was navy, but that was Cold Weather style;
In the Tropics we were dressed in pristine white. 
I took care of the children as we sailed to Africa;
Enjoying all the partying at night.
I was counted as an Officer, though a very lowly one,
The food was great, the company as well.
It was a great adventure, and one I won't forget.
And it left me with some anecdotes to tell!

More of my life at sea here:

Yes, that is a very different looking you! Yu must have had a lot of fun. I still wish I could find my friend Gloria who did the same thing as you did at the same time. Such a coincidence!
