Carter joined the navy from 1946-53. He began as an ensign. He attended submarine school adn was stationed aboard the submarine Pomfret. He was then placed in 1950 on an antisub submarine. He then went on to study nuclear physics and was chosen to serve as an engineering officer on one of the first atomic submarines. He resigned from the navy in 1953 upon the death of his father

Jimmy Carter = A complete phony who would portray one picture of himself to public and very different in private. For example, he would be shown carrying his own luggage, but the suit cases were always empty; he kept empty ones just for photo ops. Wanted the people to see him as pious and a non drinker, but he and family drank alcohol a lot. Had disdain for the Secret Service, and was very irresponsible with the "football" nuclear codes. Didn't think it was a big deal and would keep military aides at a great distance. Would never acknowledge military or Secret service who were there to serve him.
That is supposedly from the Secret Service agents, but no way to prove it, so you'll just have to accept it at face value. However, this story is repeated in many sources:
ABC noted that a similar claim was made about former President Jimmy Carter, who was said to have left the card with the launch codes in a suit sent to the dry cleaner.

Could it be that Carter knows that nuclear weapons are a hoax?
