The US Navy’s fleet is expected to grow from around 7,000 to 10,000 by 2019, a change that would see the rank structure of the Navy changed.
The move would make it more difficult for sailors to become an enlisted sailor, or serve as an enlisted officer.
In the past, sailors were able to enlist as an “A” rank if they were 20 years old or younger, but they had to have been stationed at least one year on active duty, in order to qualify for the rank of “A”.
This change would mean that sailors who were already serving in the Navy would have to wait at least four years before they could be eligible to enlist in the Naval Reserve.
The changes are part of a broader plan to make the US Navy more competitive, with the Navy also considering increasing the number of ships and submarines in the fleet from its current 2,400 to 3,000.
The Navy has also been considering increasing its naval reserve strength to more than 6,000 sailors by 2023.
The US Navy currently has about 6,500 sailors, the bulk of whom are in the Reserve.
The US is one of the world’s largest military economies, with more than 20,000 US service members on active military duty.
