In Defense of Our Shores: Navy Recruiting

By: Salvador Paez

Some people feel the need to be patriotic and to protect the United States form all its enemies, foreign and domestic. And when that call sounds, the US Navy will be happy to accept you. It is actually very simple to apply and be accepted in the Navy. You just have to find the right recruiter and the closest recruiting station to get in. The recruiters will be happy to answer all your queries.

The most usual questions are those concerning active duty like schooling, training, the tour and the pay. Other questions concern life beyond the Armed Forces such as insurance, benefits and pension. Both questions will be addressed by the recruiter to answer you fully.

When you've confirmed your decision to join the Navy, your recruiter will schedule you for a military entrance processing exam, helping you with the paperwork and the forms required for it. The recruiter will discuss your opportunities with you, and help you come up with an outline of your plan to reach your goals, based on your interest and experiences.

Before you can take the MEPS you have to pass the initial requirements for candidates for recruitment. The requirements are simple and consist of: age, citizenship, dependents, single parenthood, financial obligations, educational background, drugs and alcohol count, and your medical, legal, and moral standards.

After going through that process you can now take the MEPS and the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test, or the ASVAB. And once you finish that you can choose to go through the Recruit Training program after, or wait for a year under the Delayed Entry Program, or DEP, if you still have things to fix before joining the US Navy.

Most people would suggest you take the DEP to get into shape before heading out into boot camp.
