Just some info on the Navy ratings...
...right now the Navy is making an effort to relieve the Army and Marines in our global war on terror. What does this mean? Well, there are certain ratings within the Navy that are going to be more directed towards ground force missions...I just got off of one in Iraq. Most people do join the Navy to see the world...that's what I did, back in the early 90's but the mission is changing and that means the role is changing....if you want use the Navy as a free ticket to other countries...stay away from security oriented, medical oriented and construcrion oriented ratings(you'll still see other countries, mainly Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan or Africa)....if you need more info...email me and I can fill you in. My active years in the Navy set me up for the success that I have enjoyed in my civilian career....this last reserve stint, on the ground, in Iraq....well...let's just say...I'm glad to be back. Good luck to you! Ride safe!
