How many times will I have to be on a ship, that is deployed, or leaves port? I know it probably varies from job to job, but I was wondering which jobs are on ship the most and which the least? It's not that I don't want to be on a ship, I do, but I don't want to spend most of my career on one, how do you meet someone? I don't want to sound selfish, but I was just wondering, how many tours on average someone does on a ship. If someone could direct me to another site if that helps, thanks. Also, another question I'm thinking more and more about is Enlisting right of H.S. for 2 years, then hopefully go to Notre Dame or the Naval Academy. I would go in as an E-3, because I'm an Eagle Scout (that is true, right?). I was wondering how mny jobs would be available on my "Dream Sheet". My dad says (But this is Coast Guard, and back like 20+ years ago) As an Ensign officer, you could basically go wherever you want, because everyone needs Ensigns. Is this also true today for Enlisted Navy? I would like to return to where I was born, Honolulu, if possible for the two years, how likely would it be do you think that I would get a job there? Thanks Ohh, and one final question, do they give bonus' for enlisting in the Navy? I'm not sure where I got this in my head, amybe it's those Army commercials, but is that true? Is it based off H.S. grades or just ASVB test scores? Thanks again, sorry it's probably a little confusing. E: And would it be possible to advance to E-4 in just 2 years?
