  • US Navy

    hey i was looking at a recruiting video from the american navy the other day a mate gave me a look at it and my god was i totally impressed but one thing i cant figure out is if your irish can you join or do you need citizenship and if i joined the irish navy could i take like a transfer???

    i know alot of you will have mixed feeling about ,an irish person joining a foreign military organisation and especially with whose chief of staff there at the moment! we wont say his name, but god he's a plonker but still the yanks have all ways stuck by us and stuff so i wouldnt mind fighting for them and plus if we (ireland that is) ever ran in to trouble it would be the yanks to back us up.

      You need to be at least a permanent resident. Even then your choice of billets (jobs) will be restricted. My cousin joined as an Irish citizen (us resident) and got offered the medical corps or deckhand. Needless to say, it was the medical corps.

          ha....

          first get residency. Then wait 5 years to get citizenship. Then join

          Not sure about the money. There are basic E/O pay grades posted on the web, but there are also things like flight pay, hardship duty etc.

              Yeah, tis a bit rough alright. Especially as getting residency is hard enough. Perhaps the RN might be a better option?

                Yeah, Irish is good if you're afraid of helis landing on you...since they don't have them!

                :D

                    Nothin wrong with the RN really, you can go straight in without waiting for citizenship i think.
