Wet, wet, wet.

There are many way to get your feet (or other parts of your body) wet in the sea services (Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard) as this series of photos indicate. It can happen on dry land — even indoors, as the photo below shows.

You can be on the water but not in it and still get soaked as the next photo shows.
