Good luck shipmate. Boot camp is easy, also don't sign on for any extra years! If you're a good nuke that SRB will be out the ass.Going Navy here soon. Already sworn in but awaiting my new contract because I got approved to go into the Nuke program. Going to be in the Charleston, SC area for at least 18 months for schooling after Basic.
You get made fun of alot in the navy for being one but oh well!! You advance quick get payed good and what not so have fun buddy. Just know the navy is full of immature kids and is ran by dumbassesYeah I will see where it takes me. From what I read, being a nuke is like the most pristine job you can get in the Navy and they take care of the Nukes because they want to keep them around. I guess I will see how I feel about it when I get to that point lol
as a nuke youd be set for career. the navy takes care of the nukes very well. but you will be made fun of constantly. freaking nukes...lol jk. and the whole 1.5 time quote is bs. you have to hold to class up and youll also have prep schools for your prep school while you get ready to go to school. the whole nuke pipeline from start to finish should take you about 2.5 years. but youll come out damn near e5 and with your pockets loaded. you best know how to study. it will be your life. boot camp is a joke. and its getting even easir. it should be 13 weeks now after adding in rifle quals and hand 2 hand training that weve been hearing about. plus we hear rumors about you being able to keep your phones in the compartment for sunday routine and mando phone calls every week. lucky phucks. i got 2 the whole time. on top of that, theyre limiting IT sessions more. bye bye 10 counts and flutter kicks.Going Navy here soon. Already sworn in but awaiting my new contract because I got approved to go into the Nuke program. Going to be in the Charleston, SC area for at least 18 months for schooling after Basic.
