Neat huh? I thought it was cool that the little person* could join cadets. I was talking to a sailor I know about it, like a real sailing-on-the-sea-with-the-navy and I-know-him-from-the-tattoo-shop kind of sailor, and he said he thought that little people probably could work on ships as long as they didn't have severe health problems.
