you NORMALLY won't get a gaurentee other than the school for (Personnel Servicemen) your first tour in th eNavy. It'll be 98% the needs of the navy, and 2% your desires.

You mean work on base in an admin position? or be an administration person in the Navy? My last Admin Asst. was a Generals Admin in the Air Force. Best Admin I ever had.

1) Nobody wants to die in Iraq, but we go because it is our duty. If you don't understand duty, you might want to think about something other then military. 2) It is possible. Just look for the job code you want when you see the recruiter, or talk to other people in the Navy.

Well, I'm sure the Department of Navy has GS (civil service) admin positions. This might give you some insight: https://chart.donhr.navy.mil/

First let me point out: NOT EVERYONE IN IRAQ OR IN AFGHANISTAN IS GOING TO DIE!

I joined right after... More

NO, unless you apply for a civil service job with the Department of the US Navy as a secretary, because the US Navy does not use secretaries on active duty!!

You can enlist in the Navy to be yeoman (YN) or personnelmen (PN). Those rates work in the administration field and are not combat rates. However, you may end up on a ship or forward deployed base, but probably not in Iraq.

the rating you want is YN or PS. HOWEVER.. the Navy tries to steer females AWAY from the traditional roles and would much prefer to put them in more mechanically inclined ratings... More

Yes, this is possible depending on which rate (job) you would choose and your asvab test results. My advice: see your Navy recruiter
