Why would someone want to join the United States Navy? Well the Navy has great reasons on why people should join. The navy can help build someone’s future because the navy puts in work to help get that person a job or the education they need to do that job. They navy lets people travel to other parts of the world that the average person does not get to see. The navy also lets people meet new people and become friends.
