Thank you very much. I had heard that list but wanted to make sure those were my possible options.
If anyone else has more information that could be deemed useful, feel free to respond.
When I joined in the 80s, I didn't have an Internet or a helpful recruiter. I walked in asking about Officer Programs and left (a few days later) signed up as an Enlisted Nuke. (Yes, I was commissioned years later, but for me, I'm glad I experienced both Enlisted and Officer.) I volunteered for submarines and had no clue what they looked like, let alone where they were stationed. I don't remember reading or seeing much in the 80s (i.e., Cold War) about America's #1 deterrent weapon. I did have an above average understanding of our nearby nuclear power plant though. All I knew is that I needed something different than "small hometown" and the Nuclear Navy was the answer. I left Hometown USA, I learned, I matured, and I never looked back. Best decision of my life...20+ years later.
So, to Dave's point you can see why some of us might be a little frustrated over questions that can easily be answered on the Internet (i.e., huge research tool). As an addendum to Dave's homework assignment, you should be able to tell us where all the current CVN CO's went to college in about 15 minutes. There is a TON of information for you to learn and you'll eventually get it all; however, I don't know where to begin (without you asking specific questions) other than this: as a nuclear professional (for the rest of your life?) you're going to be expected to be technically curious, always asking questions, and digging for answers (e.g., technical manuals, drawings, infrequently used procedures, etc). Consider all future instructors your "facilitators" or "guides" and put yourself in charge of your nuclear career.
One of the problems I see here is that it seems we have younger guys/gals that show up here, ask a question, get 30 replies but then only pick the one or two answers that they wanted to hear anyway. Their choice, but guard your decisions! Choose who you listen to wisely and even then challenge the "status quo" (including your own assumptions) and be willing to learn a different opinion. Personally, I spend more time pondering answers that I don't like than the one's that perfectly fit my question. You'll find this type of logical reasoning will help you in the long run.
P.S. How could I have forgotten San Diego? Home of "Old Town", Lobster Tacos, and some of the best margaritas on the planet! Thanks for the backup! Jacksonville, FL will soon be on this list too.
