I am 17, and applying for the role of Seaman Specialist. I had my interview a few weeks ago and the AFCO appeared to be surprised that I wasn't a total dumbass expecting to be banging guns and apprehending pirates every other day, the ads really do attract some "special" people. I was wondering would my role be full time on a ship out at sea? If so then great, but from what I know (not much at all really) most roles have a job at sea /on deployments and ashore they do something else. If anyone could clear this up it would be great. Also what type of ship would I be most likely to be put or is it totally luck of the draw.. frigates,destroyers,carriers all great, anything smaller = my nightmare.
