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.

(If I did this right these should be working Amazon affiliate links to purchase the stuff I like to use. When people purchase from these links it will support Smarter Every Day.)

  • 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:

    • Your videos are AMAZING! You're always so polite, respectful, thoughtful, and genuinely nice to the people you work with. I hope it doesn't seem patronizing to mention it. Our numbers are rapidly dwindling so it's good to know more are out there... Maybe you should do a show about the origins of manners, respect, and the purpose and benefits of them in a civilized society! Wow, I just thought of that! That's my idea and you can have it 😃 take it and run with it! I think it's a great idea. Mostly because it's mine but it could still be pretty good! Let me know if you need any help with it! Keep up the great work, God knows people love it, so keep spreading the joy!

  • I watched all your nuclear submarine episodes with fascination and have constantly been faced by one question. Inside the space for humans is shown as being quite small and tight. The submarine externally is huge. What is taking up all that room between the sailors and the sea?

  • Hello I'm a 3 year Army veteran. I was going to go in the navy because I wanted to work on a ship. However, when I walked into the navy recruiters office. There was a poster of a submarine on the wall behind his desk. When I saw that I just turned around and left. At the time I didn't know that that was volunteer. I am claustrophobic and couldn't live in a sub. So I chose the army. However if I could go back I would instead join the coast guard. I enjoyed your video look forward to seeing more. Thanks for sharing. ♦ US Army 5th inf (mech)
