This book is about people learning how to go on a submarine. They are going to sub school. Sub school is when you go to school to learn about submarines and what all the buttons and tools are and what they do. It also tells you about navy life and boot camp. The navy boot camp training center is located in North Chicago, Illinois. That is where the training base is. They go there for about 8 weeks. You go there for 8 weeks if you pass everything if you don’t pass they will hold you back for a couple of days. You do a lot of tests that would be on a real submarine. For example, they put you in a replica submarine and a pipe has broken and they have to try and fix it. They also tell you about the missiles and weapons that are on the outside of the submarine.
