Hi everyone, I am about to go to basic training before going in as a Nuke. I was hoping if I could get some answers to a few questions I have. What is the life like in A school? How long is the school and how much time do you have for other things like working out? What are the major advantages of doing either surface or sub? For example, as a sub you wouldn't get to port in other countries I'm assuming. Also, does anyone have any experience with the STA-21 program (Seaman to Admiral)? Really hoping to understand how to apply and what I need to do to get accepted by this program. Answers to any of these questions would be greatly appreciated.
