Any day in the Navy.

Throughout the year, All Hands magazine has brought you photos and stories from around the world. But how do you show the morale of the Sailors and their desire to "Stay Navy."

We have found that sometimes you have to take a step back and let the fleet show you. The response for our 12th annual edition of "Any Day" was tremendous, and the fleet showed us what Sailors do on a daily basis. After sorting through more than 8,000 photos to find the images that best tell the Navy story, it's obvious why Sailors stay Navy.

Within the following pages are the photographs you shot; the stories you wanted to tell in this issue. They show our people, ships, equipment, recreation and an overall look at the life a Sailor could expect to see, "Any Day in the Navy."
