Seeing as I've read almost all threads in this forum regarding what life would be like in the Navy as a nuke. I just wanted to recap and verify some information and decide whether it would be the correct future for me.
From what I've read:
Life as a navy nuke for schooling will be rigorous, mentally straining and stressful. It will occur is three parts School for ET,EM,MM (from my inferences this is a breeze). Followed by NNPS which is a lot harder and theoretical. Then prototype which is hands on and similar to hell minus the devil and add the instructors.
After schooling one would be stationed on a SSN, SSBN, or Carrier.
-Generally hated by all non-nukes.
-Bubble-head life, again from what i heard will be hard work multiplied by two for the first year while getting qualified to stand watch. (
, "don't you have qualifications to do NUB"). After the first year, or however long one typically takes to become qualified for senior watch, it will just be normal hard work doing others work plus your own work and will overall suck the entire time.
-As for Carrier life I haven't heard much of, (perhaps they're still enlisted?).
When in port nukes typically perform maintenance and never leave ship.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this all a nuke has to look forward to? I want to hear the fun side and what people enjoyed most of nuke life.
