Pwdrin said:I know its 24/7 and i havent said im not willing to go on a ship. I am willing actually think i'd rather it, but that doesn't mean I'll always want to be onboard. I might want to go ashore and get some exp of how that works. Having the chance to go home on the weekend would be a great, but if i get to go home for a week every few months, im fine with that.
1. You won't always be onboard a ship. As an officer you will have shore drafts.
2. Leave is a privilage not a right. If the ship/unit requires you to work weekends / over leave periods, you will. Deal with it. That said you will get the chance to go home regularly
3. There are thousands of people in the navy that have great family lives, why should you be any different.
