The local recruiter here in Traverse City gave me a ring a few weeks ago and asked me if there was anything he could do to get me back in the Navy. I told him if he could get me another job, I would consider it. So, last week he called me back and told me I could be in Navy Law Enforcement. The ship duty is skate, as long as I dont get a carrier, because carriers have brigs and a lot more people than the small boys do. Shore duty would have be driving a squad car on base issuing traffic tickets. I told him, yep I would do it. I got a wife going to school in California, and two kids out there with her and I need to do something. I was going to airline dispatching school, class started this past Monday... But, I decided it may not be a good idea now. I will do it after I retire from the navy. I only have 12 more years to go. I will be in this forum often until Early January, then I goto school and probably will dissapear for a couple months. I will keep you in tuned to whats going on with me, and ask that with the terrorist happenings, you keep me in your thoughts. I am nervous about that part of it. I feel honored that they wanted me back. (I wasnt force to by any means). I am going to try to get sea duty at 32nd street in San Diego on one of the smaller ships.
I didnt want to say anything till I knew something official. Its almost official but not quite.

I didn't realize you're into law enforcement too, cool. Good Luck with this opportunity, sounds like a good move if that's what you want. Personally I wouldn't like it only because there probably isn't enough "exciting" crime to equal the writing speeding tickets on a base and patrol duty. You need a good pursuit every few months to keep you on your toes, lol. I don't know if a NAVY cop would get many of them. I work security at a local mall part-time and when nothing "big" happens for a long while you just kind of end up going through the motions and I easily get bored out of my mind. That's what I would be afraid of. Anyway, Good Luck with this and keep us up to date!

Well, at Patuxent River, those MA's (Master @ Arms) worked in ASF also... Auxilary security force. The worst part about that is you got to get sprayed int he face with mase so you know what it feels like. ASF carries 9's and Mase while they are on security watch, or in a squad car. At Patuxent River, with that new JSF package, there would be a lot to do. I would probably be one of the few into the hangar to see that piece of shit.
I actually am going to try to get recruiting duty after my first sea duty term. Well see what happens and I ll keep you informed.

Boeing757Fan. I got out of the Air Force last May, and on a regular schedule I get calls from the recuiters too. Especially since my job is extremely undermanned. I got out to go to Dispatching School as well, lol. I told the recruiter I'd go back whenthe Air Force stops treating its Airmen like babys, and the Air Force became more than a glorified day care center. He said he would "get back to me"
