Another dumb question from this lowly MUG. (sorry)
If you were fresh out of a Maritime Academy with a newly minted 3rd Mate license and had the option of going for a commission in the Navy, CG, MSC; or sailing commercial, which would you choose and why?
Getting conflicting messages here at school. If I choose Navy, they’ll give $8k/yr towards college but I don’t want to make a committment for that reason alone. I’m wrapping up my first year and need to come up with a decision before returning in fall.
Any other ‘just getting started’ advice would also be appreciated. Someone mentioned getting DP certified in another thread. If I go commercial, that’s prob makes sense.
