Quick questions
« on: May 05, 2008, 02:26 »
I'm leaving for Great Lakes in three weeks, and I had a couple of questions about the Nuke program and I happened on this site and I've been stuck to my chair for a long while now (Very engrossing reading, although I can't pretend I actually comprehend all the acronyms and in-jokes). So, the questions:

1) I thought I knew the possible jobs in the nuke field (ET, EM, MM) but from reading I guess there are more?
2) When are those chosen/assigned?
3) If a Nuke is going sub, when, where, and for how long is the submarine training?
4) I have an account in collection right now, which I am making payments on and which I will pay off when I finish training and get my bonus. My recruiter has told me that since I am paying on it and will have it paid off after training, it shouldn't affect my security clearance. It's a small debt (under $4k at this point) but coupled with all my student loans and the fact that my credit is not great (600 or so), do I have any reason to be worried? Other than the money thing, I'm squeaky. No drugs, aced the ASVAB (NUC line 271), never left the country, born in the USA, call my mother regularly, etc. So, if I'm just being my normal worrywart self, please tell me so.
5) If anyone has gone to NNPTC while married, is there an average turn-around time for getting moving leave to get my wife down to SC?

Thanks in advance for anyone's help. It will help ease my mind, as I do have a tendency to get nervous when things start seeming to go well.

1,2) Those are the jobs. There are spin off jobs like welder and ELT for MM that will be chosen and explained to you in more detail at prototype. If through your reading here, you decide you would like one of those jobs, then bust your butt, stay out of trouble and make your desires known through the entire pipeline.
3) There is no special sub training for nukes, unlike for the coners.
4) As long as you are 100% truthful, you will be fine. It sounds like you are so you needn't worry.

Thanks for your service.

This is a good trait to have in the navy nuke world. If things seem to good or going too well, then you can be sure that some major screwage is coming soon so you can prepare. :)
