So, I was at a careers event, talking about my ambition in the Navy with the advisor at the Navy's information stand, when the Careers guy said that a good way in would be to join the RNR, and then join the regulars if I like it. It sounds like a good idea, but I might only be in the RNR for 2-3 years before leaving to join the regulars. I don't know if this is an overly great suggestion, joining the RNR in a rating role, even though I might only spend 2-3 years there. Can any of you shed a little light on this? I would be interested in this, if it's doable.
