    I am highly offended at this post.

    We Followers of Zorg - the alien god of cheese goods, demand representation.

    We will not rest until there is justice.

    Doable, but you may need to strategize it. I saved my MSN for an overseas tour where things were 'slower' but it was still pretty rough with work and collateral duties necessary.

    It can be exhausting when working 12's to come home and want to unwind to instead dedicate what little time you have to a paper/project. I felt I was always under time pressure, and am glad to have finished it.

    Consider DUINS when you get into the Navy - make yourself a strong candidate, and go to school full time on the govt. dime. Pretty much all DUINS specialties are highly competitive though, so you really have to plan ahead.

    Navy here. I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but how will you handle deployments where you are gone for months at a time with your family concerns? I've worked 5 12's maybe twice in 6+ years (overseas, short-staffed, only one available etc.), but deployments are a different beast altogether.

    Other considerations include additional duties you do outside of work hours to make yourself promotion-ready. The military is a lifestyle, not just a job.

    I see my spouse plenty to be honest, and I'd consider myself a workaholic.
