    True statement! I still maintain a current merchant mariner credential and on the list with the MARAD (an inactive reserve-like program). One of my buddies received a commission in the US Navy and flew F-14 Tomcats. He always joked he would have preferred to chase girls on a cruise ship but oh well! :cool:

    He was the only USMMA graduate I ever served with. Did however serve with USNA, TAMU (many), VMI and Citadel graduates AND of course many NROTC and OCS commissioned officers...

    My buddy graduated the USMMA in the late 1980s and flew tomcats. I'm sure there are a significant number that elect to serve in the military. Because the USMMA is a "service academy" they incur an obligation to either serve on a US registered ship or in the military for approximately 5 years. Because he took airplanes his obligation was closer to 8 years.
