My youngest brother shipped out yesterday to basic training for the US Navy. Gonna miss having him around and being able to call or text him whenever, but I'm extremely proud of him for volunteering to serve our country, and look forward to watching him succeed in all his future endeavors. Go Navy!

He will get to see the world as the recruiter promised him. What the recruiter failed to tell him is that 3/4 of the world is water.

That is the truth. A high school friend joined the Navy right out of high school. He was told he would "see the world" and he did. He got to see every continent through a periscope. The Captain would announce that anyone who wanted to see "Africa" or "Asia" or wherever needed to report to con so they got their chance to see it. If they didn't then they couldn't blame the recruiter when they didn't get to see the world.

One of my best buddies is an MA (like an MP's duties in the Army) in the Navy, and spent most of his enlistment protecting Navy offices in Europe. Spent over a year in Italy attached to a NATO joint command gig, and loved every minute of it. He wasn't as happy with the almost MP duties he pulled at a base in New Jersey.  He's now Naval Reserve, and his last deployment was on a boat crew doing port security and establishing safe zones around anchored and moored US Navy ships in various harbors. 

 

One of my co-workers worked on planes stationed on a couple of different aircraft carriers, pre-9-11. He got to go to many different ports in many different countries, and has all kinds of stories. 

 

Sub life is probably a whole lot different, you probably don't see land between the time you leave on deployment, and the time you return to port at the end of your deployment.

Honestly, my brother would be totally fine rarely seeing land, he loves the water. He's going to be going to A school for Aviation Electronics, he'd be stoked if he was stationed on a carrier.

Can really see him being out on a boat of some kind depending on what way he goes for specialization...

 

Know a guy in the AF who's Aviation Electronics & he's been at the same base (his first and only one) now going on 10 years, but he works on C-17's and is always gone with them, never home it seems.

That's exactly what I did, right out of high school ( a little thing called VietNam was going on '73) Boot in San Diego, Aviation Electronics 'A' school in Memphis,Tn. then then to SACE school in Whidbey Island Wa. and on to the fleet as Ships company where the ship (we called it a boat - USS Kitty Hawk CV-63) went I went along with about >1200 others (not counting the air wing).

Congrats and Good Luck to him!

Fyi, make sure he checks the certification that he gets as a mechanic and that it'll be transferable on a commercial side. My bro-law was a mechanic in the AF and his training didn't matter from a commercial side when he got out.
