After I’m done with boot camp anyway. A couple days ago I auditioned for and won a trumpet position with the US Navy band in Washington, DC. About 35 people showed up to the audition for 1 job. I’m leaving grad school and after basic training will enter at pay grade E-6, with my official rank being Musician First Class. In the Army and Marines, this is the same as Staff Sergeant Specialist or Staff Sergeant. http://www.princetonreview.com/cte/articles/military/paygrades.asp Needless to say I am quite pleased. Although I’ll be working in the White House, Pentagon (I’ll soon have white house security clearance ) , Arlington National Cemetery, etc, my official residence will be likely be in Virginia. I know nothing of Virginia’s gun laws. Educate me. Can you CCW? (also, how does CCW work when one is active duty military?) Anything else I should know? What restrictions if any does Virginia have that stick out? and I no nothing about the Navy boot camp? Hard? Easy? Little bit of both? something all my friends keep asking me is will I shoot small arms in boot camp??? I honestly don't know about it in the navy boot camp and don't know what to tell those who ask. And any band nerds/college music majors turned military musicians on OT?
