Well the internet is there to reaserch for your presentation you have to give to PO, CPO and DO and possably Commander in charge phase one training.
At the end of the day email is available to you when you are onboard so if Raleigh is about getting in to naval life then thats part of it now.
And i think the spare time is more due to the fact that senior rates dont like working weekends
And people wonder where the navy is going wrong, maybe start by taking a look inside the gates of Raleigh?
Raleigh was a misery when I was there, spare time? Yeah, to clean, wash and polish. That kind of crap is where the seeds of camaradarie are sown, it's you and your new mates against the instructors.
Time off my arse.
