Wag ka na pong umasa mag apply dyan sa Pinas ng Navy, ang taas ng standard pero ang baba ng sahod. Bangka pa ang sasakyan nyo! Ipapain lang kayo sa South China Sea tapos mkademand ng requirements ang taas2x. Kahit HS grad lang naman sana. D tulad sa US at ibang 1st world countries, HS Grad lang ang kaylangan. Basta masipag ka lang at lahat naman natutunan. Daming etchos dyan sa Pinas, pero politico magnakaw, d makukulong. Buti nlng wala na ako dyan at iba na passport ko. Kawawang bayad sa mga garapal na magnanakaw.

Hello! Lahat ng military schools allowed ang pagsisimba since may freedom of religion tayo. May phase lang ng training na bawal muna talaga especially during closed collars (eto yung time na inaalis ang mga civilian antics natin through rigid training). For now na may pandemic, not sure if papaano bawat training area.
