Background

"The successor of the Red Rock Kingdom's Pirate Guard...The Naval Guard holds fast to almost all of their predecessor's traits, culture, and military tactics. Holding to a Golden Age of Piracy mind-set, although not pirates themselves anymore, the Naval Guard's culture---as that of their predecessor Pirate Guards---would fit into this time."

Naval Guards serve in the following roles:

  • Starship Security
  • Naval Instillation Guards
  • Prison Guards
  • Light Infantry
    • Scouts
    • Flankers
    • Rear Guard
    • Hospital guards
    • Military Police

While their loyalty is to the Kingdom's Navy, their life style and culture is rather pirate-like. They are, like the King's Army Soldier, enlisted men---and allow women freely into their ranks---who serve the mandatory 2 1/2 (3 1/2 after training) years after high school. Unlike the King's Army soldier, the Naval Guard all receive the same training after Basic Training (Boot Camp).

Due to the Naval Guards' less hazardous duties, mostly positioned aboard navy ships as security and only in combat when the ship goes into combat, Navy Guards are paid less then King's Army Soldiers. However, Military High Command feels that a better life style (not constantly in military camps and marching), better food and housing (that Kingdom's Navy has better food and housing), and the opportunity to travel in deep space and see the stars and planets, can justify a lower pay then the harder life style and service of a King's Army Soldier.

Because of the many benefits of the Kingdom's Navy, many Naval Guard,unlike the King's Army Soldier, stay on after their mandatory 2 1/2 years for another 2 years, some for part-time 3 months out of a year service for several more years, and some go career. The promise of deep space travel and seeing the stars is always an attraction to the young men and women out of high school. If a Naval Guard stays for 5 years full time (after training is complete prior to this), their pay is equal to that of a King's Army Soldier Sergeant grade after 5 years of service and they are given a 3/4-ride (3 years) of college paid for after 6 years of service to any college within the Kingdom of Jod. If they stay 8 years (full time), they get a full-ride (4 years) of college paid for anywhere within the Kingdom of Jod and a end of enlistment bonus of one year's worth of pay at Sergeant grade.

For Naval Guards who hit their 10 year, 15 year, and Career (20 year) marks, they all receive a full-ride 4 year college p[aid for anywhere within the Kingdom of Jod, dental, vision, & health insurance for life for free, and an end of year enlistment bonus of one year's worth of pay at Staff Sergeant grade. On-top of these bonuses, at 10 years, they receive pay at a King's Army Soldier's Staff Sergeant (with increases at 5% every year after that) level; if they serve 15 years, they receive pay at a King's Army Soldier's Master Sergeant level with increases 10% every year after that; finally, if they serve a full 20 years (career), they receive pay at a King's Army Soldier's Captain's level with a 15% increase every year served after 20 years for up to 10 years extra or 30 years total service (mandatory retirement & discharge after 30 years of service).

30% of the Naval Guard force serves for the mandatory enlistment (2 1/2 years); 40% of the force serves for an extra 2 years (4 1/2 years total), 20% of the force serves for another 5 years (7 1/2 years total); about 5% of the force serves 10 years, 3% serves 15 years to career, and 2% of the force enters higher management positions (training, administration, & officer positions).

Unlike the King's Army Soldier, the Naval Guard enlisted man or woman may move up the ranks as far as he or she may choose to go as long as they reach the requirements. When an applicant chooses to go from the Non-Commissioned Officer or NCO Command ranks and into the beginning Field Officer Ranks or Officer Ranks (NCO Command Officers go to Officer Ranks and NCO's go to Field Officer Ranks) and they pass the initial physical requirements, they may go directly into the two-year Naval Guard Academy (aka officer's training).

Unlike the King's Army Soldier, Naval Guards are attached to either:

Each of the Naval Garrison Command, Fleet Command, & Naval Patrol Command are each looked over by a Rear Admiral (Naval Guard) and Senior Command Master Chief Petty Officer (Naval Guard) respectfully; each dual is supported by at least two Operations Captains and two Captains; included is a support staff of at least several dozen Ensigns, NCOs, & Enlisted.
