  • Is the “enlisted officer” program in the Navy a real thing?

    I talked to a recruiter and want to cross examine what he said. Since I majored in maths and education in college (3.99 GPA) and got a 96 on a practice ASVAB he had for me, he suggested I consider the Nuke program. He said I can put in for an officer package, or an “enlisted officer” package where I could... show more
    I talked to a recruiter and want to cross examine what he said. Since I majored in maths and education in college (3.99 GPA) and got a 96 on a practice ASVAB he had for me, he suggested I consider the Nuke program. He said I can put in for an officer package, or an “enlisted officer” package where I could automatically become O-1E after finishing nuke school. Sounds like a sweet, sweet deal financially while being a public servant. BUT... is it a real thing?

  • How does the missile know where it is?

    Best answer: Through manifesting itself in human imagination and animating itself further in cartoons. It doesn't only know where it is.. it also can talk, see and understand the purpose of existence. Such a missile is likely to suffer existential crisis and be discarded owing to its procrastination.

    I’m a junior in HS who is thinking about applying for the Navy ROTC scholarship this April. My mom is making it clear that I have to go somewhere where I will not acquire debt, not that there’s anything wrong with that) and I need to figure out somewhere that is either free or almost free. I know the Navy ROTC scholarship provides tuition, fees, and stipends. The only area not covered is room and board. Is it possible to get room and board through other scholarships with the school? Also yes, I know getting into the scholarship is hard, but I feel like my stats are adequate. As of right now there are two paths for me. 1. Do Navy ROTC at a school 2. Get a full ride to ETSU and then do OCS Also, I am not going for a service academy because I want to play trombone in college. Thanks!

  • For navy secret clearance will they contact high school you attended even if you dropped out and got ged?

    Best answer: Your education history is one of the five specific areas that they delve into when doing a security clearance investigation. So more than likely they will contact your high school even if you did not graduate.

    Best answer: Your education history is one of the five specific areas that they delve into when doing a security clearance investigation. So more than likely they will contact your high school even if you did not graduate. If by chance you misbehaved but were under 16 then they tend to be less hard about that than if you were 16 or over. At 16 you are basically old enough to drive and have a fairly good understanding of right from wrong and be responsible for your actions is how they look at it. Under that age a lot of us did stupid things when we were maybe tweens or young teenagers. That and if you have behaved since then and learned from your past mistakes and have good references will pretty much cancel things out for your behavior under 16 unless a weapon was involved or hard drugs.

  • I will be joining the Army (Active Duty) in May with a college degree. Is E-4 in the army a great rank? What will I have to do? and Pay?

    Best answer: You might want to instead see if you can go in with a commision rather than as enlisted. You don't say what your degree is in and some all but guarantee that if it is in something like law, or nursing. Even just a bachelors in something like business or management will get a look and consideration if you... show more
    Best answer: You might want to instead see if you can go in with a commision rather than as enlisted. You don't say what your degree is in and some all but guarantee that if it is in something like law, or nursing. Even just a bachelors in something like business or management will get a look and consideration if you approach it from that standpoint. If you don't then any recruiter will be more than happy to have you sign up as enlisted because that is one more person that helps them to meet their quarterly quota. However the pay is more, the responsibilities and duties as an officer are generally better and you might be more happy as an officer than enlisted in the Army.

    Best answer: If you actually are in the Air Force Reserves, you should already have a general idea of what help is out there.
    You losing your civilian job and home isn't really the Air Force's problem, but if you contact the Airman & Family Readiness Center on base, they can point you in the right direction for resources that can help you and maybe help you write your resume. Since it is a Reserve base, they probably don't have the same resources of an active base, but might be able to point you towards an active duty base in the area.
    If you can come up with the $60 a night, you can stay in lodging on base.

    UPDATE: Looking at your past questions, it doesn't look like you are even in the military yet. The AF Reserves aren't going to help you to find a job or home. They are going to give you something to do for one weekend a month plus some benefits, like cheap healthcare through Tricare's Reserve programs. You'll be on active duty for basic and tech school, and maybe a seasoning program for a few months. You might be able to swing some occasional short stints on active duty.
    If you are looking for a full time job, you should see an active duty recruiter.

    Best answer: Both non-military and military service are part of the federal government. Military personnel can also be federal employees but only relating to national defense, such as the Pentagon and Defense Intelligence Agency.

    Best answer: They're called a RACK for a reason. But as beds go.......beats sleeping on the deck, I guess.
    You're often so tired, and sleep deprived at sea..........I've seen guys just pass out where ever they got to sit down for 5 minutes......I use to cop a quick nap in the fan rooms. Noisy as hell, put who cared, I got to lay down for 5 minutes on the cold steel deck. Another ship, had this great ladderwell, to NO WHERE.

    It was the weirdest thing.......discovered it by accident......you had to go down 3 ladderwells, to get to the chapel, which was pretty well hidden and obscure as it was. But from there, there was one more ladderwell......and I had no idea where it went, so one day, I checked it out. It dead ended in a closet-like space! it just led to a little 6 x 6 foot empty space! Just enough room to lay down. Either some flaw in the ship design, or they walled off some other room or p-way. and now this ladder led no where.

    it became my new home away from home, when I wanted a few minutes of peace.
