Air Traffic Controller - Willow Grove, PA - December 1, 2021
Navy life is different than any other life. It helped me focus, and concentrate on where I was going in life. As a female, in a male dominated profession, it was not always easy but I hung in there, and received my Honorable Discharge, and then re-upped for the active duty reserves twice. I met many wonderful interesting people, and went to many exciting places. Upon discharge, I was offered great jobs with companies that had military contracts. This is the reason I recommend the U.S. Navy. Learn what you can, and then grow with it, either in the service (very difficult) or by obtaining a civilian job (more highly desired, better pay, better benefits, less hassle). Would I recommend the U.S. Navy? As an officer, yes. As enlisted? only if you have no other options for education and you have big goals and dreams - it will be hard, but the Navy will give you the background you need to succeed.

Machinist Mate - San Diego, CA - March 25, 2021
I spent nine years in the Navy. The last five were pretty fun on shore duty. But the first 4 were toxic. And pretty brutal. However, I separated with full benefits and have been enjoying life and pay post Navy.
