  • 8. ~ John F. Kennedy ~“ I can imagine no more rewarding career... and any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his lifeworthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: “ I served in the United States Navy.” “ What is Naval Aviation? Naval Aviation is renowned for the demands it places upon its flyers. The skills and concentration required to land a high-performance jet on board an aircraft carrier deck pitching in the black of night, or to track a submarine while flying at only a few feet above stormy seas, are not only linked to a solid academ ic background or to top physical conditioning. There is more to it than that; it requires a combination of talents and dedication that m any people possess, but few are challenged to use to full measure. What is Submarine Warfare? Midshipmen who select Submarine W arfare can look forward to a challenging career as a member of an elite, technically advanced, m ulti-mission com m unity. Newly commissioned Ensigns will find themselves serving on board the most capable submarines in the world today. Upon com m issioning every Ensign selected for Submarine W arfare will attend one year of advanced nuclear power training, starting with six months of classroom training at Nuclear Power School (NPS) in Charleston, S.C. What is Special Warfare? The newly commissioned officer from the NROTC program may elect to pursue a career in Naval Special W arfare, which is the smallest of the unrestricted line communities. The Special W arfare Officer concentrates on the development of skills in the areas of unconventional warfare, counterinsurgency, coastal and river interdiction, and tactical intelligence collection. To enter this career area, the officer must meet the various physical prerequisites, volunteer for hazardous duty, and request to be selected to receive Basic Underwater Demolition / SEAL (BUDS) Training. What is Surface Warfare? Surface W arfare is the "traditional" community within the Navy that employs surface ships for the missions of forward naval presence, sea control, and projection of power ashore. Surface W arfare Officers (or SW Os, pronounced "swohs") are the men and women who, as junior officers just out of college, lead the sailors within the many specialized divisions of a ships crew. Surface W arfare Officers are Navy officers whose training and primary duties focus on the operation of Navy ships at sea and the management of various shipboard system s. Their ultimate goal is to command a Navy surface ship.
