Serving in our nation’s military requires a huge sacrifice.

You will be away from your families for months on end and in some cases won’t return back to them at all.

However, freedom isn’t free.

This sacrifice is required in order to maintain our great nation. The efforts put forth by these brave men and women are recognized and appreciated.

However, just because you’re deployed somewhere away from your friends and family, doesn’t mean that you can’t make the most of your situation.

Take these soldiers in the Navy.

They’ve been sent out to sea and could be out there for months at a time.

Although the ship is large, they have to find ways to entertain themselves or they may just be miserable for the entire duration of the assignment.

The Blue Hawks, a Maritime Strike Squadron based out of San Diego made a video that shows how to have a good time while doing their job and protecting their country.

One of the members of the crew decided it would be a good idea to film their fellow crew members dancing to the song “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake.

And a good idea it certainly was.

The video has racked up nearly one million views and puts everyone watching it in a good mood.

As the song starts to play, the crew member filming the choreography walks around the ship and records various personnel dancing to the song.

Dancing while they work

In some cases, the folks are still doing their job while the video is recording.

There is even one crew member out on the deck of the ship helping to land a helicopter.
