Disregard. Thank you very much, it was quite confusing but I understand with your help!

Did this work for you? Because I am getting the same error and nothing will fix it...I cant change my old address to Inactive either...

JCZ1303 1 point

Yea it's pretty convoluted. So if you hit the "Edit my phone, other email addresses, current address" button it'll pop up that window where you seemingly can't change anything.

There is an "Address type" header, and an "Address History" subheader. Use the arrows on the right side of the "Address type" header to select "HOME" address

Then, under the "Address History" the frustrating part is that you cannot edit the address, correct? The solution here is instead, that you need to add a new address. So you will hit the + sign, NOT under the "Address type" header, but under the "Address history" subheader. once you hit that + it'll basically create a copy page of your current address, however you WILL be able to edit this address.

Once you edit that address and finish up, there should be a box to check or something to make it your active address.

I guess their reasoning behind making it this way is so that they always have a complete history of where you have lived, you can never edit or fully delete addresses from your NSIPS.

Hope this helped.

I’m really conflicted!! I’ve been offered nuke by my recruiter and I’m quite interested but I also am really interested in the CTN career field. Is there anything you know that can help me decide?

JCZ1303 4 points

I went nuke cause I didn't want to wait for CTN. I sometimes wish I waited. Sometimes people ask a sarcastic question to a large group of people in the navy: "who joined the navy to sit in the same building all day, and not go to sea." I did master chief.... I did :(

Hey man I wouldn't fret. If you have the drive, and originally wanted NUK. You will get that age waiver guaranteed. I was literally same exact position and picked AECF when I went to MEPS

Less than a week later I had the age waiver through and a nuke contract that shipped a year out. Less than a week after that they moved me up to a month out.

If you are nuke qualified, bar any other medical issues, you will get nuke if that's what you want. I originally wanted CTN. I went with nuke cause I didn't have to wait. I'm at prototype now. I'm not a sub volunteer, so I will get a carrier. Pipeline is difficult, but if you truly put in the work its not a problem, being 25 and screwing up college and all those lessons really gave me an advantage. Your situation may be the same, or different, but age and responsibility really give you an upper hand in that school. Most drops in the pipeline are from immaturity.

Be a little patient, put in that work and you'll get the carrier life you want.

May I ask why?

JCZ1303 19 points

Probably because common opinion is that tux looks and feels better. I did the ceremony and pictures in blues and went to dinner and out afterwards in a suit. Pictures look great, we are super please, and I had a blast afterwards in my suit. Worked out perfect.

JCZ1303 16 points

I have a BA in math. I wanted to teach.

Ended up enlisting and going nuke, still in the pipeline. School is hard but I like to learn, and I don't mind hard work.

As far as nuke life goes after pipeline, I'd refer to some senior enlisted, but like most things I hear it's what you make of it.

I original wanted to go CTN, if you are like me, as what little background I have of you is similar to me, both options are worth checking out if you don't want to go officer.

Edit: also nuke school is in SC. Gives you at least another year in the southeast.

Untrue. You could completely stop all contact and nothing will happen. Recruiters in the future might not be willing to work with you, but I'm sure you don't intend on going to a new recruiter anytime soon.

For example. When I was in high school I was in the DEP for the Air Force and I dropped out by telling my recruiter I didn't want to do it. He gave me some flak same as you, but I didn't want it. Fast forward 7 years and I got in the Navy no problem. I even told them about that, they didn't even have me on file for ever being in the DEP.

Don't let him scare you.

i did stop alll contact after i "discharged"- which he told me "i didn't do", and then months later he calls my grandma at work. gross. he said "we were only going to discharge you to go reserves" which literally is not a thing.

if i DO go reserves, it won't be with this recruiting office jesus christ. Army reserves sound better for what i wanna do i think. especially with school. but that will be a long time after all this.

I was out drinking in town with a ton of people from work, someones leaving party or whatever. Our boss was just laying cash on the table, and me and my buddies were just keeping it flowing

Next thing i remember was having this dream of being out back of my house, like not where i lived but where Im from. And its cold and snowing and the backdoor is locked. And this dream was just me pounding on the door, trying to get someome to come to it to let me in. No answer.

Finally I had decided to just open the window and climb through. I took my shoes off laid on the coach, and that's when I woke up, immediately realizing that it wasn't a dream and it wasn't my house.

Ive never gotten up and left as fast as I did then. I made sure the door was locked when I left to avoid suspicion.

Halfway back to where I was living I was trying to recount what happened and I scratched the back of my head, to find so much dried blood it was scary. I had a pretty deep gash the size of my fingernail. I must have slipped on ice and gotten a concussion and then subsequently broke into someones house, politely took off my shoes, and slept on their couch.

I got away with it, but Im sure if they wanted to, the blood on the couch was enough dna to link me to the crime...

I'm curious, does the prevalence of guns increase the opportunity for criminals to obtain firearms? Wouldn't firearms become less obtainable for criminals if it's a contraband?

The gun lovers will tell you that this doesn't matter. The people with illegal guns already get them illegally, there are already so many guns out there, etc.

Basically they are saying that for some reason the gun market is completely irrational and doesn't follow any of the basic laws of supply and demand.

That's simply false. Making guns more difficult to purchase legally would absolutely make it more difficult for criminals to purchase them illegally. Basic economics tells us this. If you restrict the flow of new guns into the market, then you cut the ability of straw purchasers and shady purchases.

If that flow is restricted then the guns that already exist will become more valuable. If criminals can't buy new guns, then they have to buy or steal old guns, which depletes the available supply on the used market.

It doesn't matter really how many million guns are floating around out there in the hands of legal owners...If you shut off the gun faucet, its not like those legal owners would just say "hey, I'm gonna sell my gun to a criminal" or "hey, lets leave the gun in my unlocked car".

Guns are easily attainable for criminals now partially because they are easily attainable for everyone else. Of the guns recovered from crimes in Chicago recently, something like 20% of them came from 4 specific gun stores that are just over the county border From some of these stores, 50% of the recovered guns came within 3 years of the original sale. It is pretty clear that this is not just a handful of old guns that happen to get stolen--there is an evolved black market that puts newly purchased firearms in the hands of criminals. Most of the steps of that black market are illegal, but because of variations in state and local law, local police are limited in who they can go after (often to the point of only being able to charge the gun-user with having bought the weapon illegally, but not being able to go after the traffickers and straw purchasers further up the line in other jurisdictions).

If you cut that pipeline, you would see the price of black market guns shoot up as supply dwindles. But a lot of gun people don't even want to talk about ways to cut down that pipeline (not banning them, just keeping them where they should be) on a national scale--and if it doesn't happen on a national scale, it will never happen, since states don't have border checkpoints and criminals don't care much about breaking the law by driving 5 miles away to buy a gun in another state.

So you're telling me a criminal willing to weild and use a gun in an illegal fashion would let a high price stop them from obtaining one?

IMO, the best use for melee trigger gems is getting effects you don't want on your primary attack: endurance charge on melee stun, stun, blind, power charges, leech. The additional damage is nothing to be relied upon since it's usually worth ~0.1-0.4s of dps every few seconds. It's neat while leveling but does not fit into the overkill damage play style of high level builds.

JCZ1303 1 point

Thanks for the reply, I'll browse other builds and see if there's something else I find appealing, perhaps that utilizes those gems somehow

I can't answer your first question, as I have no experience but...

Retaliatory question: Did you walk into the office wanting MA? Or did you walk in wanting to join the Navy.

If it's the former, then tell your recruiter straight up that that is the case. If it is the latter, I suggest researching second and third choice rates, as nothing is guaranteed. That should answer your second question

As for the third question, your recruiter may not be happy if you don't sign, you have to go all the way back again, wasting time and money.

Rarelyrare 1 point

Well its really leaning towards become an MA, but I do want the experience of the navy too. So long as its not anything drastic like cook or anything. But follow up question is, even if he unhappy with me walking out, going into the fleet with an rate you wanted nothing to do with is not really reccommended right?

JCZ1303 2 points

True, but remember that being in the DEP doesn't mean you are at point of no return. Just because you swear in after MEPS you aren't stuck. Until you ship out, you can back out. I don't recommend letting yourself ship out with a job that you definitely don't want. and again, be straight with your recruiter, as hard as it can be since they don't seem to always want to be completely straight with you. If you pick a job at MEPS you aren't going to ship out with, I would straight up tell him/her, if this doesn't change, I'm not leaving.

In short, I wouldn't rely on crossrate suggestions from your recruiter, if you are job-locked on MA, then don't leave without MA, simple as that. It's your life, your recruiter can act like their mad about something like that, but if you are willing to wait, it's either they wait with you and get one towards their quota, or they don't get you at all.

I'm currently in the DEP with a Nuc contract. Signed AECF to ship Oct 25th of this year when I went to MEPS in early March. I had to get a waiver for my age for the Nuc contract, which went through in only a couple of weeks.

I don't stand on any knowledge basis with this, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that an age waiver will be pushed through faster than something regarding legal issues. If you want to get the whole MEPS thing out of the way, which was my case, I would say go for it and sign something with a date far off if you can help it. If the waiver gets denied and you don't like your position, then don't leave, simple as that.

EDIT: Sign something with a date far off.... That you might enjoy (i.e. take trump-sanders advice and research other rates as second/third choices). Nuc isn't my first choice, but I'm more than happy with leaving with it if it comes down to it.
