Welcome Barry Anderson, my son is an MM2 aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln. He likes his rate so well he just signed on for 5 more years.

My Matt got his MM rating and promoted to Petty Officer in January. He just began Nuke Power School at Goose Creek this week.  Really wants a Sub, is looking at applying to the Academy or going in the STA 21 Program after Proto Type to make officer. As all Officers on a Sub have to be Reactor Qualified.

My sailor will be an MM on a fast attack. Anyone have any idea what they do? He is currently in Groton, CT for BESS and weapons maint school.

@jim, thanks for the info. I didn't know if the rank was supposed to be included.

Michael, instead of SR you would put his rate...MM Tom Jones. E-3 is his pay grade and is not referred to as rank. I know it's a little confusing.

Once out of boot camp, how do address the letter to your sailor, since he is no longer a SR? are they a Seaman since they have an E3 rank? Or is it MM Jones, Tom?

Good Afternoon all! Great news from my son Matt, he is in the Nuke Program and got the rating he wanted MM. His PIR is 09/14. From there off to Charleston, SC for MM A school and then 12 months of Nuke and Prototype. He is hoping upon finishing Nuclear school to attend the Nuclear Welding School in Groton,CT.


Matt was Award the "Military Excellence Award" and will be leading the 12 Divisions into PIR, SO PROUD OF HIM!!!

My son is a MM on the USS Kentucky.  A SSBN submarine. Will his rate change also or is that a different animal all together?
