You know its crazy, no matter how senior you get you seem to end up at the base MWR when you are away from home. Often, in homeport, we shun them like that’s for junior sailors, or why would we go there. But when you are in another port they can be invaluable. Every base is different, someplaces have a bar the sells only beer, others a full bar. All offer WIFI but it varies greatly in quality. They all have varying levels of other entertainment. Yes these establishments are geared at the single sailor living on base, but to a visitor who is too lazy to take the bus or call a cab, they can be quite useful. So here a cheers to our MWR facilities, especially those with a full bar, and good WIFI.
