Will free WiFi attract more recruits?
Will it improve quality of life and lift their spirits?
The DoD reported 48 suicides among active-duty Navy sailors from January to October.

In an effort to appeal to younger generations, the Navy will begin offering free Wi-Fi (with filtered content) exclusively to sailors living in barracks at Norfolk and Portsmouth installations beginning next week.

The plan is to make sailors life more modern and appealing - enhance the “lifestyle of the modern sailor” with access to online games, shows and movies, connect their social lives.
But not all is just about fun and games
The Wi-Fi pilot supports the sailors holistically, taking into account their social and entertainment needs, professional training requirements, and career progression goals.

Nobody is going to join the Navy for free Wi-Fi. Especially after they filter out the 'good stuff' that young sailors are almost certainly interested in.

Back in the day ships would pull into Subic and sailors could hit Olongapo and relax. Would Wi-Fi help. Nope.
