New Navy History in the AIMM Archives
A recruiting brochure from World War II has been donated to the museum.
"What Kind of Job Can I Get in the Navy?" is from 1942, just a few months after the United States entered the war. In addition to describing general Navy pay and benefits, this brochure describes 49 different specific career fields, describing pay and duties for each rating as well as related civilian jobs and general knowledge that would help an enlistee qualify for that rating.
Many of these ratings no longer exist at all, and many others only exist in greatly changed form, so this booklet provides a look back into our past.
Digital copies of this booklet are available upon request.
