Jumping off an aircraft carrier

So, my compulsive liar platoon sergeant once said that he had jumped off of an aircraft carrier. Let's break that down.

A. On today's supercarriers, the flight deck is roughly 60 feet from the surface of the water. You would need a near perfect dive or toothpick for your leap to not be fatal.

B. The U.S. Army is the ground force of the U.S. Military. There is absolutely no reason for a soldier to be on an aircraft carrier. Most of the security is done by the Marines.

C. Even in the most unlikely of circumstances that a soldier is on an aircraft carrier, why in the land of the free, home of the brave would he have to bail on his sailor brothers and take to the seas?

Comment on why you think this alledgedly happened, because I'm lost in the sauce.

He wanted to, uh... go fishing?

Well, one of my professors at UNI told us the story of how he once punched a shark in the nose with a underwater camera. Needless to say, we now use him in Chick Norris jokes...

Sounds like a cool story and just that, but hey he might just be really awesome.

I sincerely doubt it, those decks are very, very high above the water.

Maybe it was a bet?

Yeah man, just do it.

I'm pretty sure mythbusters busted something like this. jumping into water like this is like jumping into concrete. essentially the water 'can't get away' faster enough to cushion the blow.

One time I huffed a-lot of paint and I thought I had sex with gwyneth paltrow. It turned out to be a horse. Maybe he huffed paint and jumped off a bigwheel

Maybe it was a boat and he doesn't know it.

he wandered onto one confused and drunk and the sailors pushed him off would be my guess if anything was true out of his statement

Well obviously he was in a jeep that got airdropped in the wrong spot, so he ended up on the carrier. Then, when he realized that he wasn't where he was supposed to be, he jumped off the side and swam to land

Wouldnt he get into trouble for causing a panic?
