    Looking at the Navy Seabees

    Why you say?

    I want to finish college, i feel as tho i wont with the current situation im in

    i have no determination or drive to finish

    I work full time in a factory that pays about 13 grand more than what the navy would pay me in a year, the factory pays for college as well as the navy

    Since i work full time i cant take no more than 3 classes in a semester. Im 24, still a freshman. I like beer, what can i say

    Shall i take a leave of absence from the factory and join the navy for a 13 thousand dollar pay cut?

    Id have free housing, only bills would be my outstanding loans and truck payment, along with insurace. Cell phone bill. Id probably lower my insurance to liability. Free food too apparently, dont know how good it would be tho

    Id get trained at different jobs i can use for my career, while in the meantime work to get my college degree. Travel all over the world. Get in shape, develop more leadership skills, cuz you know girls only like guys with good skills

    what to do?

    id hate to leave my friends and everything.

    Pros/cons?

    minus?

    And yes, SeaBee's have officers with the designator 510X, Civil Engineer Officer, and SeaBee's have been in Afghanistan/Iraq since the beginning, they're the Navy's version of the Army Corps of Engineers essentially.

    SeaBee's are what fleet Sailors call Dirt Sailors.

    I just honestly can't imagine wanting to be in an engineering-type job in any branch but the Army.
