Questions About Commissioned Naval Officer

Naval Officer Careers?

I want to become a Naval Officer, and have decided upon 3 general MOS that I would like to apply for. Supply Officership, Surface Warfare Officer, or Public Affairs Officer. My questions: I know Marine Officers create a wishlist containing jobs they would like, but unless they graduate top of class, they usually don't get their first couple choices unless they choose 11bb (infantry). Is it the same in the Navy? If so, which of these jobs listed above would be the most competitive (the hardest to obtain), and which would be the easiest? What does each job mentioned entail as an officer? Which of these jobs require calculus or other advanced forms of math? Thanks a TON. NROTC, Annapolis, and OCS all would have me commissioned as an unrestricted line officer. I'm not enlisted. I'm doing NROTC. Not direction commission. *direct commission

Can I go from Army Flight Warrant Officer to Commissioned Naval Officer while still flying?

So I am curious to see if it is possible to just transfer over into the Navy as a Commissioned Officer after completing my Warrant Officer Flight training. Or would I be required to go through the Navys form of OCS before hand? And even if I complete OCS would I be able to fly helicopters once I am in as a Commissioned Officer? Which rank would I be assigned if I had prior time in service. Lets say if WO-2 would be similar to an O-2 in the navy? Please read the question before posting. @Fas @Chris

Navy officer social life / sex life?

I'm going to Navy OCS in a couple months and wanted to know what the social life was like for commissioned navy officers? I'm joining the Navy out of patriotism (not to get the ladies), but I wanted to know what kind of social opportunities there were when officers who are not out at sea. Do women prefer officers over enlisted? Are there really tons of easy women at the bars near naval bases? What are bases like overseas? Thanks for your help

Royal Navy Officer.?

As a past air cadet, now turned university air squadron member, I have always planned to join the RAF. After spending a day or two with the local URNU and having equally as much fun as my UAS experiences, I decided it would be beneficial to assess the careers that the Navy has to offer. I have looked at the Royal Navy website, but I can't fully distinguish the officer careers from that of the Non-commissioned officers etc.. Any details or descriptions of Naval Officer careers would be most helpful. Thanks! : )

How many ships have to be built each year the US Naval fleet to stay at full force?

Good trivia navy trivia question. I can't find this answer anywhere! Thank you I know this is a terrible question. My sea cadet officers said we need to find out the answer. I understand that there are many variables like retiring ships that change the number of ships that are built. Is there a minimum number of ships that have to be in commission at the same time? Thanks and I'm sorry about the question. I wish it were more clear, as well.

Can a Navy Reserve enlisted member be engaged to a soon to be commissioned Marine Corps Officer?

If two individuals are currently dating and one is enlisted in the Naval Reserves while the other is on the commissioning track for the Marine Corps at a university, would the two be able to continue their relationship if they were to become engaged before he commissioned? Or would this still be considered fraternization under the Marine Corps regulations?

Can an officer attend the US Naval Academy?

If I attend Norwich University or the Virginia Military institute, and graduate with a US Naval Ensign commissioning, can I also (at a later time), attend the US Naval Academy for another bachelor's degree or a masters? Can a Ensign get admitted to the US Naval Academy? I would be willing to get a new Bachelor's degree. I just want to have the Naval Academy on my record. I plan and hope to spend the next 30-50 years in the Navy... and I've never heard of an Admiral that hasn't gone through the Naval Academy.

US Army Infantry Commission?

Hi, i'm currently a Naval Sea Cadet and a member of the Civil Air Patrol. I turn 16 in Feb. and I had a quick question about Infantry officer commissions, how hard is it to get one? I mean, only 50,000 soldiers are in infantry and I'd imagine that a lot of people would like to be infantry. So, what would be a good degree to get in college so i could get a infantry commission? Also, if I didn't get an infantry commission, is it possible to transfer over to infantry sometime in my career? Skip all that "You're only 15" bullshit, I want my priorities straight for when I start applying for ROTC/Academy scholarships next year.

West Point vs Naval Academy?

I'm a 14 year old girl. I want to be in the military there is no question about that. I want to know how the Naval academy differs from west point other than the being commissioned in different branches of the military. The only reason I would consider the Naval Academy is to commission as a marine. Is your experience any different if you commission as a marine officer or navy officer?

Employees are like Rail-cars... if you don't replace us as 3% a year, you'll be screwed down the line...

JobSearchFilter: How do I explain years of non-documented interest and knowledge in an interview, and where can I look to search for shipping industry employment? For full disclosure, I'll put a shorted version of my CV/circumstances at the top here: I graduated from a US University with a BS in Political Science (yes, yes, would you like fries with that?), and a minor in Naval Science. The minor was necessitated by a military ROTC program which I had to leave immediately prior to commissioning due to medical problems (having to do with tendon swelling during long distance running-- doesn't affect civilian employers unless I'm running more than 5 miles a day.). Since then I spent six months overseas mastering my command of the German language (I learned pidgin German at home in the US when I was young as my dad was learning English at the same time), then arrived back in the States for the worst job market of my lifetime. Hooray. I am trying to get i

Why is the bill so.. hated?

"This morning, I woke up to my radio alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly run by a state agency and supported by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility with its quality monitored by the Environmental Protection Agency. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the Federal Communication Commission regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). I watched this while eating my breakfast of US Department of Agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). At the appropriate time as regulated by the US Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards

Will the navy pay for my college?

After high school, I'm planning on going into the Naval Academy to either become a fighter pilot (preferably Hornet) or a helicopter pilot (preferably Osprey, Super Stallion or a S-70 Battlehawk). I would be getting my bachelors since you need four years to become a commissioned officer. After a few years in the navy, I'd like to go into culinary school to start a restaurant (I have big dreams, I know). Now, IF I am accepted into the naval academy, would my service time pay for the academy and culinary school (I'm thinking they'd only pay for the academy so I can serve, but I just want to be sure)? This is all speculative since I know the possibility of me being accepted into the naval academy AND getting into UPT is slim since they only take the best of the best, but you never know.
