I am thinking of joining the navy?
I heard that I would have to start out as a petty officer. I girl I met that had dated other sailors said that petty officers have to do the laundry for the officers, clean the ships toilets and wash 1000 of dishes. I really like the sailors uniform as it makes me feel important but being a petty officer sounds really bad. Does anyone know what it is like to be a petty officer?

A petty officer is a NCO or non commissioned officer. There is no way in he'll you can start out as one. Now it is possible to enter at Seaman E-3. Also your serving your country. Why should it matter what you do, you do what the navy tells you to do.
