What are good fall back jobs in Navy?

I want to join the navy with aspirations of becoming a SEAL or SWCC. But if i were to fail out of BUD/s i do not want to be stuck doing some job i absolutely hate for four years. What are some descent jobs/ratings in the Navy? I was thinking about a corpsman, or should i look at another branch?

Granted this kid probably won't even make it to Boot Camp before doing something stupid and being discharged, and if he does he will definitely washout at BUD/s... More

I get the vibe that it's "combat" you're seeking. Why else would you aspire to be a SEAL or SWCC? I would recommend Corpsman, particularly Fleet Marine Force (FMF) Corpsman. I've been in that game for 7 yrs this yr. Fought in Iraq in '06 '07 '08 in the USMC Infantry platoons (combat action ribbon and all). You are in... More
