I've always had a love for the sea and I feel at home on a ship more so then I do on land.

The correct answer (what they told us in boot camp) is: To serve my country.

Really? The Dutch? Seriously? Must we have a discussion on the Dutch in my personal ad thread?

Needless to say, there are two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch.

The origin of this quote comes from the reign of Philip II.  He was the first monarch in history who could say teh sun never set  on his dominion, because he had land in Europe, the Americas, and Asia (Phillipines).  Then the English decided they could take after the Armada.
