Contemplating going back in the service

Yup, you read it right....

I've got ten years active duty already, figure I can do another ten (or more) standing on my head....I just hate to see that time I've already served go to waste.

Anyhow, I cannot find any info on prior service requirements...boot camp and all that stuff...

Anyone know any other info on prior service joining back up?

Oh yeah, I've been out of the Navy, 14 years. :bigsmile:

I know a little about this, so I'll try to give you what information I can. Keep in mind that I could be completely full of it. I'll do a little research later to see if I was correct.

I believe that when you go back in, you will lose at least one rank from where you were when you left, unless you were E7 or above in which case you keep the same rank. You do have to go to Great Lakes for a 'boot camp', but it isn't the same one that you had to go through years ago. I think the 'boot camp' for non-continuous service members is shorter, easier, and completely separated from the recruits.

You've been out of the Navy for so long though, that I don't know if any of this is true. You may be running into some time/age restrictions... but since you've been in the Navy for 10 years, you already know that there is a waiver for almost everything.

I'll do some research and get back to you.
