    Story by Petty Officer 2nd Class Dallas Snider 

    Navy Personnel Command

    MILLINGTON, Tenn. - Two-hundred and eighteen Professional Apprenticeship Career Track Sailors selected their rate during a series of PACT Rodeos at Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni and Commander Fleet Activities Sasebo April 8 – 11, 2024.

    Sailors with a minimum of 10 months at their first duty station are eligible to attend a PACT Rodeo, where they have the opportunity to select their rate and commence on a path toward advancement. PACT Rodeos also let Sailors negotiate for their duty station while applying for their rate.

    “I thought that the rodeo was a great experience,” said Seaman Danielle Bina aboard USS America (LHA 6). “They talked about what rates you qualify for and what is open to you. You get a lot of information in depth, and then they get you the rate you want and to the place you want to go.”

    Bina selected her rate as a Boatswain’s Mate while also selecting her next duty station.

    PACT Rodeos simplify the rating process, helping Sailors further their careers and providing them a rare opportunity to interact with Enlisted Community Managers and rate detailers.

    Upcoming PACT events include the Career Development Symposium Europe onboard Naval Station Rota May 6, 2024.
