For those who served in the RVAH Community, their families, and friends!
The Navy is running a new TV ad highlighting the fact you can get up to 30K to enlist. How times have changed since the days of the draft in the 60s. I just remember that I went to boot camp in San Diego with and E-2 pay grade because of some college that I had. That monthly $89 did not go very far at all. I went off to Millington and made E-3 and got a whopping $111 a month. It sure was a different time with much different expectations then. It was an interesting adventure to say the least for a nineteen year old kid like a lot of us then.
Remember my first time I had to fill out a PAY CHIT while still in BASIC..
If we didn't cross our Ts or misspelled a word we had to start over
TV ad ? I haven't seen any TV ads for the Navy...
