definitely want to go in as a Airman

that way you are pretty much guaranteed either being station on shore or a Aircraft Carrier

Seaman's get all the rest...............lol

I was Aviation Ordnance

but if your son can get in as a Aviation Electronics Technician , then he should be pretty much set, in and out of the Navy , it's a pretty high demand job

although I was in a life time ago under the Reagan administration and being stationed on the Eisenhower , meant we were station in the Mediterranean , but the three years I spent on the Eisenhower, seems the longest I ever really remember ever being out to sea for any given time , was maybe like 3 weeks , and once we were actually in the Mediterranean , a week or two at the most , we spent alot of time just going from port to port , Spain , France , Italy , Greece , etc


a lot of that time was also just spent in and around Norfolk and Newport News , obviously , it will depend on which ship and which coast he'll be on

my biggest complaint would be , you spend ALOT of time on the flight deck , that it's self isn't the complaint , but you get to breath in alot of JP5 which always made my eyes burn

Aviation Electronics / Communication would be pretty food fields to get into


  Hey Iowa, you might like to know.... My oldest Son switched back to USN!
