Entered service as a Seaman Recruit, made it to Seaman Apprentice, and then was accepted at Navy Officer Candidate School. Spent 20 weeks in Newport, Rhode Island before being commissioned as an Ensign. Got out three years later as a full Lieutenant (0-3).

I forgot to add that my son was in the Army (2 years as a chocko and he transferred to the regs for another 5 years). He was peacekeeping in East Timor for 7 months and my daughter was in the Army for 6 years, her husband was in the Army for 10 years.
