  • Welding in the U.S.Military....Who is the best?

    I am gathering information for my oldest grandson who is now a senior in high school.
    He has been helping in our shop since he was a pup, so it isn't like he would be clueless by any means.
    Just simply looking for who would be the best for advanced training in metalworking skills and actually getting to use them here and abroad.
    Would love to hear of your experiences. What to do or not to do.
    Thanks in advance

    The Navy has the best "trade schools".

      My guess would be the Navy. Structual, hull, pipe, etc. welding.

        Does the Navy do much of their own large welding projects? Most is probably contracted out to private firms.

        But, of course, the Navy is the best.

              Just don't ever call it that...

              I was twenty years out before I stopped automatically trying to pull my "cover" out of my pocket and put it on every time I walked out of a building.

                I think that job has been phased out for quite some time now according to a google search and a thread I found on the Hobart forums.
