I am an E-4 in the US Navy and I get asked the question all the time by other sailors "Why do you want to become an officer?" Some think it is for the money or I do not like enlisted life. For me I see it as a chance to do more and have more influence on Navy polices. Face as an E-4 I do not have much say, I just follow order. But as an officer I can make sure that my junior sailors are getting the fair treatment they deserve. I am not saying I'll change the way the Navy does things; but from being a junior enlisted myself I know some changes are needed. Just wondering why some of you decided to make the change from enlisted life to officer or to join the Navy as an officer?
