I worked at US Navy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Builds character, allows you to meet people from all over and you learn how to handle difficult situations, Your constantly praised, Work is not hard, its the mental challenges you have to face and once youve done that everything is easy.

Cons

If you go surface fleet be prepared to hear alot of team but when it comes time for someone to have your back, you will be solo. I recomend submarines. Also surface fleet is very hard to be promoted. Ive seen people in 8 years just making it to e-5 where i was e-5 within 3 years of becoming a submariner and i didnt even go into no special program.

Advice to Management

DONT LET SAILORS GET MARRIED until they have completed at least 1 tour of duty. Ive seen to many outstanding sailors go to crap because they either loose everyhting in a divorce or dont know how to handle it and start getting into much avoidable trouble.
