But the trade-off is you will go see things that the average person never gets to see. As a West Coast Sailor I got to go to Australia, Singapore, Guam, Bahrain, Qatar, Dubai, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, and around South America. You never have to worry about job security, housing, utilities, food, or health insurance, as these are all free. Much of your gross pay is also tax-exempt. Even if you decide not to do nuclear power, there's plenty of other extremely technical jobs in the navy to choose from.
Yea one thing though, 99% of recruiters will lie about anything to get u to sign in. Like my job, I was told id be able to get jobs at airports for radar operations and the only job I was qualified to do when I got back out was army field artillery radar operator. Make sure you research your jobs(mos) carefully so you know what you qualify for when u get out. My brother in law lucked out. He is a blackhawk mechanic and recently his chief retired. He got approached with a job offer that is being held for him for 20 more months when he gets out of the army. He will go from making 30k a year to making 140+k a year. Some jobs pay well when you get out, some the only thing you are qualified for after you get out are landscaper or janitor(your other 2 hidden mos that you are not told about) lol

That's the main reason I'm so hesitant to consider it. I've heard way to many stories of lying recruiters. That and I have certain views about what the US has been doing militarily recently but that is another topic for another time. I'm not exactly in a bad position atm either, it just sounds like it would be interesting.

Well, I'm no recruiter, and I've been out since 2006. I won't BS you. Nuclear Power School is grueling and attrition is over 50%. When I go to hell and Satan asks me if I'd rather spend my eternity at nuke school or training with the navy seals at BUDS, I'd pick navy seal without a second thought. But on the other hand, I'm glad I have that experience under my belt. Navy nukes are quite employable

Lol, all i see here is panic spreading bullshiet.
I actually live in japan and while is true the there was fear because the reactor was getting hot, the situation was controlled long ago. What "exploded" was the water vapor. There was only 1 reactor in danger and NO THERE WONT BE CHERNOBYL STYLE KAZOOM!. - Sorry to burst your bubbles.
post #646 of 2836
Some of you guys need to calm down regarding the meltdown. There's just been an expert on the BBC News, and to summarise the Meltdown is not a huge threat.

- The reactors have been off-line for 3 days
- There's barely any radioactivity left when compared with operational amount
- The fuel housing and inner chambers of R3 are still very much intact
- Following a meltdown, the fuel would likely heat through it's casing and into the ground, where much of it's energy would be absorbed into the floor
- The initial explosion apparently wasn't even that bad, and the building is DESIGNED to explode outwardly in such a fashion, to prevent damage to the reactor. It was caused by gasses PURPOSELY released. And may happen again. Obviously the explosion wasn't desirable, but it wasn't pertaining directly to the integrity of the reactor.
- This is way past Chernobyl, as the reactors have been off-line for 3 days. Chernobyl happened at a plant already deemed unsafe by western standards, in an OPERATING reactor. The power production went from 25% to 500% in 3 seconds during this incident
- Lastly and most importantly, he said a large devastating explosion releasing clouds of gas is very unlikely, nearing impossible at this stage.

Just gonna tell you guys once and once only, you should consider getting some Potassium Iodide. It is something to protect your thyroid and body from radiation. I am a cancer survivor and understand how deadly and poisonous even a small amount of radiation is let alone if you were to inhale particles.

NISA is reporting that there is Nuclear Material exposed on the core of #1 and now Japanese authority's are warning that another explosion is possible at another reactor.

The winds will carry the radioactive material around the world and it will affect everyone. This supplement cant hurt you and isnt a bad idea to have on hand or take a couple. The winds could bring the material to America in less than 36hrs if it gets into the jet stream.

Not trying to fearmonger just thought I would give you all a heads up. Amazon is selling it like crazy right now.

Have the 2 posters prior to Hawk really read the thread in its entirety? I doubt it.
EDIT: I think Dom has.

The military is awesome if you can keep up with all the BS that goes around. I was a combat engineer handled everything from det cord to c4, to clearing minefields to constructing forward operating bases. As well as being attached to a Recon Platoon to sweep the roads of Iraq for IEDs and weapons caches. Loved every second of both deployments to Iraq and hated every day I was back in the states, because being back in the states meant we weren't doing anything except training and blowing stuff up and too much time for BS to come down the pipe, I would have rather been deployed.

In the end I had the opportunity to reenlist for another 70k but I wanted to go back to school + I wasn't going to make the Marines my career so I'm going to school now. But if I were to get called back, I'd go in a heartbeat.

Even if the plant were to melt down it still wouldn't be a sign of how unsafe nuclear power is, it would be a sign that the 5th largest earthquake ever recorded along with several tsunamis is unsafe because 99.9999% of the time when there isn't some insane natural disaster occurring it is essentially 100% safe.
In countries that have good infrastructure and security measures to harness nuclear energy it is safe. Though nuclear waste, leaks and radioactivity around the plant is a serious issue that occurs everywhere.

But when countries with no experience or countries that have archaic reactors from the cold war era insist on nuclear energy, then there is a problem.

Btw this is the first nuclear accident to be caused by natural event and not human error.
