Now i know i'm not exactly a common face on the forum anymore but i was curious as to your guys's thoughts and input. I have decided to join the navy. Plain and simple. I'm going in under the DEP program so i can enlist in the next few months. And then as soon as high school finishes i ship out immediately. Whats your guys's opinions on it? I highly doubt ill find anybody who's served on the forums, but anybody who's served, serving, or planning on serving i would appreciate some input.

Navy ranks differently than Marines but in a good way for you. Yall get promoted pretty fast to E-4 and E-5, sometimes even E-6 from what I've seen. Just learn your job and be proficient at it. Navy PT standards are easy as hell so you should be striving for max scores on all PT test. Don't do anything illegal to get you into trouble. Anybody can make one mistake and lose their entire career in the military pretty easily.

So,
1. Learn your job and be good at it
2. PT
3. Don't get caught being dumb

Not a military man myself, BUT I know a lot of dudes who are. Do better than your best, strive to improve at all tasks, listen to your commanding officers, and be willing to bust as much ass as possible.

Also be safe man.

What made you decide to join the military?

Hey man, i am going in as well. I am going Army but i plan on enlisting and going the direct commission route. If your like me your doing alot of cardio, pullups, and pushups.

I wouldn't say ass kissing is the way to go. Everyone who wants to move up is an ass kisser. You want to be dependable above all things, the guy who in difficult situations is rock solid. Follow orders and strive to be the best guy around. Don't get content or complacent but set the precedent. Be intelligent and receptive, but not a know it all. From what i gather the key (atleast in bootcamp) is to not stick out like a sore thumb.

Colony is a Marine, is this information about right?

If that's your opinion then by all means, I encourage you to move to a 3rd world country, eat one meal a day, sleep next to an open sewer, and die early from an easily preventable disease. Or get beaten to death by an angry mob, because youre an asshole that nobody wants around. The rest of the world won't miss you a bit.

Exactly. Anyone with common sense would be a ghost, but most of the dudes in bootcamp are straight out of highschool and have no bearing or sense of direction. They literally babysit you and if you're smart, you catch on quick.

E5 and E4 are easy depending on your rate(MOS), my rate it isn't so easy, I've done quite well in advancement exams, but it still took 5 attempts to get promoted to E4. Granted, my evaluation wasn't the greatest, but still. My advancement was 18-30% of those taking the exams getting promoted. There are other rates where one person, for said rate, gets promoted.
-Pt, like he said,
-Show up on time, with a good haircut, good shave, clean uniform
-Have some bearing, don't talk to superiors, or even peers, like they're your boys, till you've been there a while, and have a comfort level with people, but know when to stand up straight and address people accordingly.
-if you do anything, the whole command will know by lunch, and the whole base will by the end of the week. Know your friends and who you can trust, and don't hang out with the fucktards who are causing trouble, cause perception is a bitch
- don't drink and drive
-if she's been drinking, go home, not worth it
-work your ass off, and no matter how well you think you know your job, sit back, listen to your superiors, and how they say to do it, SOPs(standard operating procedures) are in place for a reason, not saying don't speak up, but be tactful, and respectful, follow orders
-you're a boot, don't act like it, don't buy a new car and get an anchor tattoo in "A" school, just don't, you'll be the butt of every joke. Don't

Oh, and boot camp is a joke, but study all that dep shot real well, you can leave boot E3

Did You just say if she's been drinking go home not worth it ?

Girls love to call rape even after giving consent. Lots of dudes get burned by that one. I've always told junior marines to find a girl with low mileage and marry her.
