If you are thinking of joining or becoming employed by the U.S. Navy you need to take careful account of the very serious risks to your health that can be involved in this decision. The U.S. Navy will not tell you about these risks and that you need to know about them before you make a final decision. The U.S. Navy will expose you to dangerous chemicals known to cause delayed cancer at levels of exposure known to be harmful and that will permanently damage your health and will not tell you about this. No matter how much money is involved, you need to ask yourself if dying of cancer 20 years from now, or having your health permanently ruined is a good bargain to make with an employer that has a track history of secretly damaging innocent people and then abandoning them. You can chose to believe the Navy hype, nonsense and phony advertising propaganda if you like. And if you want to believe the U.S. Navy "Core Values" or "We Take Care of Our Own" stuff and nonsense that's fine. But before you make up your mind you should become educated about how the U.S. Navy can permanently ruin you and then walk away from you, leaving you with no ability to make a claim.
The U.S. Navy is exempt from most environmental and health and safety laws. You have no "right to know" and you have no ability to obtain compensation. The U.S. Navy policy is simply if you cannot do the work they want you to do then you are discharged. This applies to both employed civillians and those who are enlisted or commissioned. There are no favorites. You need to see a real case of how the Navy "Takes Care of It's Own" before you decide.
