WATCH: A Day in the Life of a Sailor on an Israeli Warship

We spent a day with IDF sailors aboard their naval warship. From sunrise to sunset, we took an inside look into their training — from shooting at targets in the water to putting out fires in the middle of the sea. Here’s what your typical day would look like if you were a sailor in Israel’s navy. 

It’s early in the morning, and your ship is at bay

 But you’re gearing up for a journey with your brothers

 Together, you lead the ship out to sea…

And gather with other sailors to train for threats

You need to prepare for the risk that a fire will break out at sea

Really, it can happen

Then you patrol the seas with your crew…

And after hours of tough training, it’s time to eat

Once you’ve had your fill, you shoot at targets in the water…

Moments later, jets from the Israel Air Force join you for an exercise…

Next, you have some dinner, and visit your buddies in the kitchen…

Not bad for just one day in the Israel Navy
