[QUOTE="Arf, post: 588784, member: 14270"] This is a good question. Start with this. He is a former SF officer. [MEDIA=youtube]8x2Zo0ic2DM[/MEDIA] My personal reasons for joining the Navy were that I wanted to be amphibious, I wanted to be near the ocean, and I wanted to do medicine in some fashion (that left the marines out of the most part.) The idea of being landlocked inland really bothered me and it still bothers me to this day. I would say that the locations of the bases are pretty damn good because most of our bases are on the coast. Since I have been in, my observations on quality of life are subjective but also very differing on what your Military Occupational Specialty is or Rate(Navy), what base you are at, and what command you are at. I’ve only really been around Marines personally (not MARSOC) and from what I have witnessed, my life is a lot more comfortable. Keep in mind that Marines pride themselves with doing more with less. Life seems much more comfortable for us that it does for them. Life in the conventional Navy is not nearly as good as I have it in NSW, and I imagine it is much of the same in every other branch. Navy seems to deploy more than most everyone else. Forward projection of Sea Power dominance is a very serious concept and that extends to NSW also. You get to travel a lot more than any other branch, but if you are going the fleet, it also means that you may be on a ship for months. In NSW it is better because you aren’t connected to a ship and they don’t make us jump commands every few years. I have read that the Marine mission is beginning to return to their roots as a Coastline, Amphibious, Sea Power enforcer. [/QUOTE]
