You need to be more specific. I tried to see the discussion part of this question and did not find a thing.. I am AGR retired (1SG and retirement counselor) and all worked out fine. Retired effective 31 May 2008, received my first retired pay 1 July 2008 (for June).. Maybe it depends on which Stat…e you retire from and how G-1 and/or the AGR Section manages your packet. (MORE)
Answer . No, because Naval units do not typically wear shoulder sleeve insignia (patches). There are exceptions to this rule, however. If the Naval unit was under an Army command they may be authorized the shoulder sleeve insignia, former wartime service (combat patch) of the Army command to… which they were assigned. (MORE)
It depends on the legal terms of their divorce - if the divorce agreement specifically entitles the ex-spouse to the member's pension (percentage determined by the agreement), then yes, she is entitled. However, without such terms in the divorce or other separate legal agreement, the former spouse h…as no claim on the member's pension. For example, a good friend of mine was married to an abusive husband for many years, and part of her divorce settlement gives her half of his retirement - since he's an FBI agent, that'll keep her set pretty well. It's important to remember that marriage is a legally binding contract as well as a relationship, and when that contract is dissolved, so too are any legal claims the two partners have against each other unless they are a part of the divorce agreement.

Yes, you are allowed to wear awards from other U.S. military services on your Navy Uniform.
John McCain's retired from the military with the rank (rating) of US Navy Captain.. This is basically equivalent to the rank of Colonel in the Army.

Is a retired US Navy Chief Petty Officer still authorized to wear the CPO dinner dress uniform at formal occasions such as a local Marine Birthday Ball?
You bet, Chief! You served your country and retired with the thanks of a grateful nation. But just so you have Chapter and Verse, here's the appropriate part of the US Navy Uniform Regulations: 61002. UNIFORMS FOR RETIRED PERSONNEL 1. GENERAL . Retired officers and enlisted personnel, who ar…e not on active duty, may wear the uniform, insignia, and qualifications correÂsponding to the rank or rating indicated on the retired list. 2. UNIFORM AUTHORIZED a. Retired personnel may wear uniforms at ceremonies or official functions when the dignity of the occasion and good taste dictate. Wearing a uniform is appropriate for memorial services, weddings, funerals, balls, patriotic or military parades, ceremonies in which any active or reserve United States military unit is participating, and meetings or functions of military associations.

The Navy and Army have different aspects, appealing to different people. The job you desire should serve as a major deciding factor in how the U.S Military Service will utilize you. If you join any branch of the military as an MA, you are likely to see plenty of combat, where as if you join HM, (Arm…y), you could very well be located at a hospital in Felujia. Where as in the Navy, you have a dream sheet of where you can potentially choose to be stationed. Nothing is guaranteed, but the Navy offers more choice than any other branch, and they are the only branch in the military to show you your contract before you are sworn in. But all branches show you your contract before you commit to Military Service or sign any service committing forms. You should look at educational benefits as well. Look at which branch is connected with which schools, and offers what programs and scholarships. Every decision you make alters the overall picture of which branch of military fits best with you. Study up. Talk to your recruiters and let them know you're talking to them about their branch. All branches are extremely competitive with each other. The Army, due to it's large size requires a lower ASFAB score than any other branch. This is only to make sure anyone regardless of education can serve their country. While the Navy is much more selective because of their small size, they require an ASFAB of 50. The Army tends to have more benefits for their troops and veterans than any other branch and give you a large range of Job criteria you can choose from. The Navy does not let you choose some of the jobs and assigns them accordingly. The best thing you can do is talk to both a Navy and Army Recruiter and to people who have joined the Army or the Navy and look into their experiences and what you are looking for. (MORE)

If you only accumulate the points while in Inactive Duty (Drilling and Correspondence Courses plus 15 Membership Points) then the max you can get is 130 points. If you are Active Duty due to Mobilization, Annual Training (AT), Active Duty For Training (ADT), or Active Duty for Special Work (ADSW)… the most you can get is 365 (366 during a leap year). If you mix them, again the max is 365. For example, let's say the first 6 months of your Anniversary year you were Inactive and you already racked up 50 Points and you did 13 days of AT. Then you get mobilized and are Active Duty during your last 180 days of your Anniversary Year. At the end of your Anniversary Year you will get 180 + 50 + 13 + 15 (Membership Points). That's 258. Another example is you are Inactive Duty for the first 30 days of your Anniversary Year but you have racked up 100 Points from Correspondence Courses (it could happen if you were motivated enough and didn't have a life!) and then get mobilized for the next 11 months of your Anniversary Year. The math for this is 100 + 335 + 15. However, the max points that they will give you is 365 (even though it adds up to 450). (MORE)
It's different for each rate/rank, and whether or not you have any prior service, degree, etc., or not.

There is no set limit - it depends entirely on the year of separation, years of service, type of separation, COLA adjustments, and many other factors, including disability, POW status, etc. There are so many factors that there's no way to determine the pay for any given retired Naval Commander. Even… an active duty Commander's pay isn't easy to determine, since it depends also on service time and other factors, such as sea pay, hazardous duty pay, dependents, housing, etc.. (MORE)
Under military uniform regulations, absolutely not. "Flowers" of any type are not authorized as a uniform device for any regulation Navy Uniform. However, having said that, it is a long standing tradition for sailors to be decorated with lei's upon arriving in Hawaii, and Naval Commands tend to o…verlook the rule as long as it doesn't interfere with Navy protocol. For example, they'd overlook it if the sailor was on liberty in uniform (unless there were specific orders prohibiting it by local commands), but would not tolerate the wearing of them on duty. Most sailors are aware of the uniform regulations - no sailor goes ashore without being first briefed on all rules/regulations to be followed. It's of course different for Navies of different countries, but the U.S. Navy is not blind to decades of tradition either, and fostering cultural good will. (MORE)

I do know people who have done exactly that, but they've all had an MOS in the Army which corresponded with their occupation in the Navy Reserve. However, this may not necessarily be a requirement, although you'll likely have to attend some sort of occupational specialty training if you're not trans…ferring from a corresponding Army MOS.

Sargent is a rank in the air force or army. The navy does not have such a rank.
There is no reason why you cannot. As long as your discharge is honorable, there should be no problem. The ranks don't transfer, but the time in service does.

Nothing - once the service member is deceased, all benefits cease. The only exception is if the member was killed in action (KIA) - in that instance, survivor's benefits apply.
You can, but it depends entirely on what your prior Navy and Army rates were, as well as your rank.

Note that in the history of the U.S. Navy, there have only been 2 SEAL's to achieve the rank of 4-star Admiral. The first SEAL to achieve 4-star rank was former Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Commanding Officer Admiral (SEAL) Eric Olsen ; the other one is the current (2013) USSOCOM CO Admi…ral (SEAL) William McRaven . Also, there are restrictions by law on how many Admirals the Navy can of 4-star rank at any given time, and there have only been just over 200 4-star Admirals in U.S. Navy history. The easiest thing to do would be to confront him with those facts, but the best course of action realistically is to have him outed by real SEAL's, either active or retired. Former Navy SEAL's Don Shipley and Steve Robinson are such SEAL imposter hunters, and they've outed quite a few over the years. Once an impostor is outed and in the database, they're scamming activities drop significantly. Shipley runs ExtremeSealExperience - his Twitter page link is listed below, and his contact number is at the ESE site. Your best option is to contact him and get him involved. (MORE)
