The  following  shows  the  normal  path  of Figure 9-10 shows a comparison by paygrade advancement  by  paygrades: General Title Seaman recruit Fireman recruit Airman  recruit Constructionman  recruit Hospitalman  recruit Dentalman recruit insignia   of   enlisted   personnel   of   the   Navy, Marines,  Army,  and  Air  Force. Paygrade Let  us  trace  the  advancement  of  a  typical E-1 enlisted   naval   careerist,   Tom   Gaskins,   who specializes  in  the  occupational  field  of  Gunner’s Mate   (Guns)   (GMG).   Gaskins   first   enlists   as a  seaman  recruit  (SR).  After  receiving  basic training at a recruit training center, he expresses interest  in  deck  seamanship.  Upon  completion of   his   training,   he   is   transferred   to   sea duty.  Aboard  ship  he  receives  general  training in   seamanship   and,    in   time,   qualifies   for advancement to seaman apprentice (SA), then to seaman  (SN). Seaman apprentice Fireman  apprentice Airman  apprentice Constructionman   apprentice Hospitalman  apprentice Dentalman  apprentice Seaman Fireman Airman Constructionman Hospitalman Dentalman Petty  officer  third  class Petty  officer  second  class Petty  officer  first  class Chief  petty  officer Senior  chief  petty  officer Master  chief  petty  officer E-2 E-3 E-4 E-5 E-6 E-7 E-8 E-9 Meantime,  having  demonstrated  an  interest in  the  rating  of  Gunner’s  Mate  (Guns)  (GMG), Gaskins   receives   an   assignment   to   gunnery maintenance duties in the weapons department. Having  shown  himself  proficient  in  that  field of   work,   Gaskins   receives   authorization   from his  commanding  officer  to  participate  in  the Navywide  advancement  examination  for  GMG3. Gaskins  can  participate  in  this  examination only  after  he  has  met  certain  requirements, such  as  length  of  time  in  service  and  paygrade. If successful, he then has recurring opportunities to compete for successive advancement to GMG2, GMG1, and GMC. Gaskins retains the specialty rating   (Guns)   until   he   advances   to   chief. Thereafter,   he   becomes   eligible   to   compete for  advancement  to  senior  and  master  chief petty   officer, the  latter  being  the  highest enlisted   rate.   He   even   has   a   possibility   of being  selected  as  the  master  chief  petty  officer of  the  Navy,  a  billet  held  by  only  one  Navy enlisted person at a time. Subject  to  standard  instructions,  personnel in  the  lower  paygrades  may  freely  change laterally   from   one   group   to   another   before receiving   intensive   training   in   one   particular field.  This  allows  time  for  each  person  to find  his  or  her  choice  of  work  in  the  Navy. However,  once  a  person  has  advanced  to  the petty officer level, lateral changes are permitted less  frequently. UNIFORMS The   jumper-style   uniform,   worn   since   the turn   of   the   century,   is   still   the   prescribed 9-13
