Navy Ranks Show Your Dedication And Experience

Going through the Navy brings on a number of different rewards. Those who choose to make a career out of the military will be able to rise in the Navy ranks and show their true pride. Anyone who us considering this type of career will need to look below at this guide and learn about moving up and making progress.

When an individual signs up and leaves for basic training, they will start out at the very bottom. This means that they will start out as an E1, or a seaman recruit. Throughout bootcamp, that individual may be able to rank up. This of course is going to depend on the overall performance throughout training.

After basic training, individuals will then need to learn and train for the job that they have chosen. This is another great way to rise up in the Navy ranks, simply because sailors will get another rank once they graduate from their training. Be sure to put in the work and determination in order to get ahead and boost that naval career. As long as the sailor shows the right kind of determination and hard work they should see the rewards in no time.

Once the sailor begins their full career, they will need to ensure that they are staying fresh and prepared. Throughout the career, there will be various exams that will need to be taken. These exams are made available when the sailor is ready to rank up. When the exam starts coming up, the sailor will need to study their core values as well as certain aspects within their job. Get ahead and it should be easy to rank from there.

If the exam has been passed, the sailor is then going to be able to reap great benefits. The pay is going to be raised, which is always a great perk. On top of that, the individual will also get to wear a new patch for their accomplishment. This of course is going to be a huge boost of confidence so keep working.

The officer schools are also very popular. This is actually one of the quickest ways to rack up, but it will also take a lot of work. The individual must have a college degree in order to even qualify. From there, the individual will gain their earned Navy ranks and move on, into the fleet.

In order to get moving, the sailor needs to start studying and using other study resources. A good sailor can usually remember and recite the necessary information to pass the exam. This of course is going to be up to the sailor, so get started and take pride in that career.

Being in the Navy is going to bring on a variety of advantages. Those who are looking to get ahead in the Navy ranks will need to work hard and take pride in their work as well as who they are as a sailor. Starting immediately will easily set any individual ahead.

    My dad was in the Navy on the sub SS-210 his name is Thomas J Trigg. It shows his rank as MAtt1 can some tell me what that rank is please and thank you.

    • Adam Reffett says:

      Mr. Triggs… “Matt1″ is the abbreviation for the naval rating “Mess Attendant First Class”.

    I am incensed that the United States Navy refuses to provide me with copies of my father’s military records. He was a Chief Petty Officer with the United States Navy serving in both the Korean Wars and Viet Nam. I believe the Navy is concealing his records which might disclose he was lied to about his rank and pay. He said his rank was reduced and he has no idea why, but his pay was reduced with the verbal rank reduction. I researched family history and made a discovery that the very same pay reduction happened to his grandfather during the Civil War – same reduction in rank just after the major battles were won in Fredericksburg – and prior to his discharge at the end of the war. The very same reduction occurred to my active military son just prior to his first deployment to Iraq.

    I believe the military is intentionally withholding pay from some active military in discrimination – reporting to the members that their ranks were reduced but on official record – in Washington, the records show the promotion rank.

    This is likely a cost-savings ploy, while the member of the military believes he actually was reduced in rank.

    If I am correct, this is unconscionable and a dishonor to our service members when brass are raking in all-time high pay at US tax payers’ expense.

        He won’t get anything extra piaywse. He is already getting dependent BAH since you are married. There is no other extra pay.He can put in for annual leave when the baby is born. It can be granted or declined just like any other leave. Most commands will absolutely grant him leave for his child’s birth.

    • Harley says:

      Did it ever occur to you that perhaps they didn’t want to tell you why they were reduced in rank? You don’t have to be court martialed to be reduced in rank. As for the CW – a lot of things happened back then; it has nothing to do with bias.

      http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/military-personnel/index.html try looking through there for the ‘how to’ in obtaining records. Regardless, you’ll need his DD-214, just make sure you can actually obtain it first (that should be on the link somewhere). You should also remember, there was a fire that destoryed a lot of records in 1973 – the site also goes into that.
