I was a Boats for 5 years and it was the best experience that ive ever had and i will never forget it. It takes alot of mental power to be out to sea for 9 months with one or two ports. Godbless the navy for the hard work they do.

If You or a family member is considering going in the navy and you want a non bs answer of what its like please feel free to give me a pm.

We used to shoot ***** off the fantail of our little DDG, which oiler are you refueling from? USNS isnt it?

As far as what does a naval officer do?

Depends on how high in the chain of command you are and how good your CPO s and LPO s are that work for you - if they dont do their job you do a lot.

that a woman firing that m 14 with the shot line?

must be the new navy - that must suck

What exactly does a typical Navy officer do? Not being a smartass, just genuinely curious.

If you are talking junior officers, basically they screw things up so that the Chief has to fix them. :)

Seriously though, depends on what the career path is. A line officer usually moves around to different departments on the ship. Might spend a year in engineering, a year in operations, and a year in weapons learning all of those areas in preparation for more senior positions eventually.

A LDO (limited duty officer) concentrates more on a single area. For example, my boss on the Iowa was a career Intel officer, and thats all he ever did.

My 2nd daughter was a "Boats" for 4 years on an LDS, the USS Germantown. She absolutely loved it.

When she signed up, I asked what a Boatswains Mate does and she replied, "I will paint, scrape barnacles and party in places all over the world my friends will never see.." :lol:

It was a great experience for her and she was deployed to the Gulf twice, dropping off and picking up Marines.
