I might have been born Air Force. I did, in fact, give birth to a kid determined to the Army.
And even at it's ripe old age of almostit's still looking good. That's why I was delighted by this list some of our readers created at a Military. But there's just something about the Navy. Oceanfront property. Be it ever so humble, the Navy forces you -- just forces you, Dear -- to live near an ocean. You have to walk on beaches in the sunset -- there is a law.
You simply must learn to pick crab or lobster while drinking local beer and listening to Buffett. Porpoises and dolphins are such an everyday thing that you don't even bother to look up when they flash by. Once in a while you get a weirdo billet NAS Fallon we're talkin' to you where you can't even remember what the ocean looks like, but most of the time you get to live near the sea. White uniforms. Not only do our own sailors develop miraculously good superstar looks when they don the spanky white version of their uniforms, this trick works for actors, too.
Tom Cruise in Top Gun. Richard Gere in Officer and a Gentleman.
Cuba Gooding Jr. John Wayne and Cary Grant also quite delightful in Navy garb. Makes you wanna wake up and smell the polyester! Please note: Putting on the "blueberry" uniform does not work the same way, Liam Neeson.

This is a little less picturesque in the rain. Or the snow. Or that unfortunate sleet storm that pummeled all the balloons. But it is really, really pretty most of the time.
