    i'm enlisting soon hopefully, i was going to about 3 months ago, but then was told the rate i wanted (secf) didn't have a bonus. i went home and talked to my dad about it he said just wait they'll come. theyre not coming any time soon though and i'm really not that worried about it anymore. anyway i just want to get in and get started. if i go enlist this week how long will i be in dep? also i'm a clean 20 year old no crime and no drugs to get waivers about. and have a high asvab score and a few college credits, don't know if any of that would help me. thanks ot barracks.

    that is refreshing to see here, you mean you aren't a tat'ed up recovering meth head with 3 felonies convictions? Good for you.

    WTF is SECF? thats not a rate...that might be a school field that you have to pick a rate from after ?


    whatever you DO do....pick a job, get it in your contract, and get your bonus in writing BEFORE YOU GO....dont go in undesignated or in a job you didnt pick, if you end up hating it then you have a good reason to blame yourself.....if you pick a job and end up hating it you atleast got what you wanted.


    EDIT: the recruiter should recognize that you are a high quality recruit and help you get whatever he can with the detailers as soon as possible..

    yeah, it's not really a rate sorry for that, it's more like a program that leads to one of three rates, i hope to become a radioman.

    yes, well it depends where you go but in general subs have newer gear


    wait it out i say, ET is a great job to have....tell the recruiter you want to go to that school as soon as possible so if he can help you out by talking to the detailer in anyway to please do so

    and bring him donuts and coffee or something haha

    ET (Rad div) is a pretty sweet job on board submarines. I'm glad you said you were clean because you need a strong clearance to grab that NEC. Good luck.

    The Navy is downsizing dramatically. Even for sailors that are in for 12 years, they have to put in a request to reenlist and if you aren't making moves and being a good sailor they can deny your reenlistment.

    You won't get a bonus, period. Unless you do special warfare/operations or nuke.
