    LDO questions

    Advertisements
    I was wondering if anyone on here has a SO that was up for Chief and then went LDO.

    DH didn't get selected for chief this time and he might look at trying to go LDO.

    THe question I have is he is currenty a Nuke MM and I know that there is a nuclear option for the LDO program. Does he have to do the Nuke option for LDO and does this allow him to stay on subs?

    I am trying to keep all of our options open and get as much information together for him after he gets home so that he can make a decision on what he would like to do.

    Yes, if he is a Nuke......then he would have to go with the option for Nukes ........and I believe he would end up going surface after that, unless it has changed in the last four years or so.

    If he has to go surface, then I don't want him to do it. We like our sub community and do not want to go surface. It is nothing against the surface fleet, just personal preference is all.

    My friend's husband did this. All I know he he was a sub guy for years and is now on a ship........and I believe he didn't have any choice. But don't take my word for it.....she said it's been an interesting change for them.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need
