    1. That’s called an “UnRep” for Underway Replenishment.

      My job was inside that helicopter as an aircrewman, which is a SH-60F Seahawk.

    3. My brother goes out for 6-8 months on the boat, normally. He’s in supply on the Ronald Reagan. I don’t know if that deployment time is standard or not though.

    4. Normally 6 months tops and you don’t live in the dirt or have crazies with bombs strapped to their chest trying to hug you.

      Oh, and every few weeks you go to someplace cool and drink, like Japan, Singapore, Spain, Ireland, ect.

    5. I’m finishing up 6 1/2 years in the Air Force, and it was pretty cool. I learned a lot of shit and was able to get a degree and TS/SCI, so I am set career-wise. I never considered the Navy, but it seems like that’s not a bad choice either. And I think they make enlisted rank faster.

      I really can’t believe you’re considering joining the Army. Shit, even the Marines have 7-8 month deployments. I really hope you’re going to be an officer, or life will really suck for you.

    6. I’d go for the Navy, myself. You’re not so likely to die horribly.

    7. Actually, no. I’d join the coast guard.

    8. They *try* to limit Navy at-sea deployments to no longer than 6-7 months, but there are exceptions. One carrier (LINCOLN, I think) was on it’s way to Australia for a port call on it’s way home when they turned it around and sent it to Iraq for the start of OEF. They were out 11 months total.

      Then there’s the famous story of one of the BBs in the 1980s — they went out for a two-week exercise, got surged to the Med, and didn’t come home for close to a year. AND they swapped homeports, so the families got to do it all themselves.

      The Navy tries to treat people better these days.

    9. Navy time is guaranteed to be 60% at sea/ 40% at home. But you know Military Guarantees.. Anyway, it’s a sweet life compared to Army life. My brother was in Afghanistan for 15 months and came back crazy, while I get ot be at sea for 6-7 months with a warm bed and three hots a day, AND get to see different countries without people trying to murder me to death. AND AN ARCADE! ON THE SHIP! It marvels me to this day. Freaking zero-g pinball.

    10. this img = EPIC beer run.

      but the navy is actually sending officers (who have brains) to demolitions/explosives school to dismantle IEDs and then attaching them to the Army. if you’re smart and don’t want to get blown up, the navy isn’t a sure thing so much anymore.

    11. Nothing is a sure thing anymore, they’re sending people from the navy to be prison guards in Iraq and Afghan and whatnot, even if its your job. Trust me Demo, nothing is guaranteed, even in the navy. still better than the army though, the only thing guarantee in the army is that you will go to Iraq. (pretty much.)
