Openings aboard ‘Old Ironsides’
quote:

Furling sails, climbing on yardarms and firing 5,600-pound long guns may not be typical duties in today’s Navy, but a few sailors will have such opportunities soon.

The Navy is accepting applications to join the crew of the historic frigate Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, anchored at the Charleston Navy Yard in Boston.
