IamA Nuclear Reactor Operator on a US Submarine that was honorably discharged in January. AMA!
My short bio: Hello. I enlisted in the US Navy in January 2011 and was honorably discharged in January after doing one six year contract. I since have obtained a job as a civilian. Feel free to ask anything from Navy life, to Submarine life, to the transition. Thanks!
Edit: A nuclear reactor operator controls the nuclear reactor that powers all of the US Submarines. We have no interaction with nuclear weapons and I know nothing about how nuclear weapons are built, work, or operate.
I am leaving for a while but will update periodically. Thank you everyone!
