In the late 1930s, many young Chamorro men on Guam were joining the Navy. All they were allowed to do was work as mess attendants, and a few other things related to the galley and other chores.
A famous expression was "Join the Navy and see the world."
On Guam, there was a little twist to this saying :
"Join the Navy and see the world.
What did I see? A kitan girl."
Kitan, in Chamorro, means cross-eyed.
