Going to Raleigh in June in my chosen submariner branch, and was thinking about how quick it was from initial RT to confirmation of Raleigh date. Really looking forward to the whole start of phase 1. I was wondering why the quick process was because there is a high turnover of submariner recruits leaving or is it because of the need for more recruits with upcoming astute class boats coming into surface in the future? I am certainly going to go for SSN class but I know at the end of the day it's the needs of the service. Fingers crossed.
