I'll be entering the DEP program within the next month or so, but there were a few questions I was curious on, and the majourity of women on the navy.com boards are wives or gf's *groans* ANYWAY. If anyone would be kind enough to answer some questions, I'd be most appreciative.
1. How long , in the morning, do you get to shower? I read for the guys it's five minutes, are the women under the same restriction?
2. I read somewhere in regards to dress uniform "they wear the same thing". Which had me confused. I thought the womens dress uniform was the white skirt and jacket, whilest the men wear the stereotype sailor outfit, or do women also wear that, or do we get a choice? The whole thing just confused me.
3. I know you go into the pool twice, and women are supposed to bring a black/navy single piece bathing suit for this. If you don't have one, will the Navy, like the mens, provide one, or will you have to buy one on-base? My normal swim suit attire is a bikini and board-shorts (you know, the lovely shorts that go to yer knee) if it was a solid black/navy colour would I be allowed to wear that, or would they say that I'd needs must remove it and be in the standard one-piece?
4. In boot, are you given the option to attend chapel? What are the "un-written" reprecussions if you don't, and what is your alternative if you opt not to go?
I'm sure I'll have more questions, but those were some of the ones that have been bothering me for a bit. Thank you for reading, and for taking the time to answer any of those which you can.
