    yeah it's good, but with this whole Navy consolidation crap going on, everything is on hold for the whole Mid-Atlantic region at least, probably mostly everywhere in the Navy.

    Unless you are looking for temporary work or a stop-gap position, I wouldn't look to get on with the Navy. Too much talk of BRACs and RIFfing engine companies. Case in point: I've been on for less than a year and have been told twice that I'm getting laid off. If you like to constantly have your "career" position threatened, than by all means give it a shot! Good luck in any case....
