At random: “What wordy praise can one give such men as these; men who … follow unhesitatingly when in the vicinity of minefields so long as there is the possibility of targets … Men who flinch not with the fathometer ticking off two fathoms beneath the keel … Men who will fight to the last bullet and then start throwing the empty shell cases. These are submariners.” - Eugene Fluckey in his final war patrol report aboard USS Barb

Getting my arse kicked from pillar to post on HMAS Stalwart (a Destroyer Tender) as the Electrical Department disciplinary problem when the Electrical Officer called me to his cabin and gave me a choice of Submarines or being buried in the hole I was digging for myself.

Needless to say 14 years in Submarines later and now 18 years of maintaining Submarines in civilian life probably means I made the right choice.
