    My fiance served 7 years in the Navy and got an honorable discharge about a year ago. Well, he wants to get back in as an officer and make a lifetime career out of it (his family is NAVY). He is 26 and was told he couldn't ROTC because he was to old, but with a spotless record I have a hard time believing he wouldn't be eligible. It's very difficult for me to help him with anything Military related, as the only person in my family who was in the navy was my grandfather (RIP William Lloyd Sparks). I'm just trying to find out anyway where my fiance can get back into the navy as an officer, I know getting back in the navy and getting his father's sword would mean a lot to him. If anyone could help us I would be very appreciative. Thank you for your time.

    I think your fiance can apply to OCS to become an officer

    I appreciate your patriotism, but I wouldn't advise you to post personal information like your grandfather's name on a public forum like this. Thanks :thumb:

    Thanks

    Thanks for the links, but I couldn't find any age restrictions for OCS, if there are age restrictions would it apply to us?

    oops

    Oh, I just read that I should post a bit about myself. I'm planning to get my exotic animal care and management degree so I can work at sea world, the zoo, and because I'm going to marry into a NAVY family I've started to consider working with the Dolphins/Seals/Service Dogs for the military. Its going to be hard with my fiance in the military, but I'm pretty determined to continue my career. Thank you guys for all your help and taking your time to answer all my questions so promptly.:biggrin:

    Generally your most reliable information regarding the routes to becoming a naval officer is to make contact with your local Naval Officer Program Office. You may have to find your nearest office via a Navy Recruiting Office. You very well may find that the OCS route is the best bet as it is open to college graduates so it has more flexibility regarding age. Best wishes to you.
