I teally like your comments re: pre-enlistment training. True,
Exploring in general is almost totally devoid of advancement which
actually suits the program perfectly since it is up to chartered
partners to train within the realm of their specialty.
Sea Exploring is unique. It has a long standing traditional advancement
system, tough at Quartermaster level, but still not adequate to satisfy
the USN for E-3.
Youth in NSCC however must sit for the exam just like evryone else and
it is by virtue of this that they MAY qualify for E-3 (descretion of the
Navy of course)
I guess the question is could Sea Exploring offer the training, sea
time, etc. that would allow youth to sit for the exam and possibly
It's and interesting thought. NSCC, BSA and USN would have to sit doown
together and work it out. All could benefit.
