IamA nuclear reactor operator on a submarine. AMA!
I have been in the US navy for several years now, and have served on submarines ever since getting out of nuke school. The US Navy uses nuclear reactors to power its submarines and aircraft carriers, and all the people running the propulsion plants go to nuke school. I'm a reactor operator, the the least numerous subtype of nuke, and went submarines right away. I (obviously) won't discuss anything classified, or personally identifiable data, but I'd love for people to know more about my job and life on boats (particularly if they're considering it for themselves). AMA!
My Proof: Was sent to the mods, for obvious reasons.
Edit: After four hours, thank you for all the great questions, and the chance to hear some opinions and find a new webcomic. I'm no longer watching this thread, but I'll get any question you post, and I'll do my best to answer. Take care, reddit!
