The author focuses on the Adopt-A-Ship Program of the U.S. Navy, which allows civilian chefs onto ships at sea and naval bases to train Culinary Specialists (CS) in the finer aspects of cooking. He states his experience of teaching CSs at the general mess of the U.S. National Security Agency and aboard the USS Higgins, a warship. The benefits of the Adopt-A-Ship program include enhancing the morale of the navy personnel on board a ship and increasing a CS's passion for his duties.
