Hi im new to this website and saw that a lot of questions are answered here. I am 19 and currently in community college getting my associates degree. I want to be a chef and have talked to some chefs and they say that joining the navy is good route for me to take to help pay for college, and also get good training from the Navy. Im really considering it but im a little scared and still have a lot of questions. I definitely want to finish up my last year for my associates degree so im not ready to talk to a recruiter yet. I am also overweight so that is a big thing i am working on now to get into to shape. Any suggestions on what to work on for boot camp? Any moms have any sons or daughters who have gone or are in the navy as a CS/chef? And also how was it for some daughters at bootcamp? I know ther are a lot of rules for girls that i have read such as no shaving legs and no makeup. Any other big things girls have to deal with besides the basic physical and mental training? Im really interested but i want to make sure i find out everything i need to know before i make this big commitment.
