US Navy Shows

If great music was all it took to get young men to the recruiting office, these U.S. Navy Shows would have found more sailors than we have ships. As it was, these great programs from the USN Recruiting Command gave us hours of toe-tapping goodness and dreams of the high seas. Update: Hoot'Navy shows added
