    The best things about the Navy is the health care. Not necessary the actual care but you know you will not pay anything out of pocket for the most part. Another great benefit is the Tuition assistance. Someone with 20 years in the military could most likely use tuition assistance to complete your degree and when the time warrants it, you can transfer GI benefits to your children so they can go to school. worst is time away from family.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former E6 - Navy - Petty Officer, First Class in San Diego, California

    Having medical and dental benefits was outstanding. I loved sailing around the world and seeing all of the wonderful places. When I enlisted there was no retirement plan, now there is the Thrift Savings Plan which a sailor can invest a certain amount of their income into. 30 day paid vacation a year, where in this country can you get something like that?

    StarStarStarStarStar Current E8 - Navy - Senior Chief Petty Officer in San Diego, California

    Some of the best things about the Navy are Health care, retiement plan, travel, upward mobility and fast advancement. The only down side is that you travel for long periods of time.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Cryptologic technician in San Diego, California

    Pay is great once you get Bah. Military medical is terrible as it may take 3 weeks for you to get seen for an appointment. Pension is great but they are slowly taking that away. 911 GI bill is the real seller.
