If serving overseas at a U.S. Embassy, learning a foreign language and being able to directly influence U.S. Navy and sometimes foreign policy is something that interests you, you might consider the Navy's attaché program. Secretary of the Navy Instruction 1300.16, on the Defense Attaché System (Service), was issued in October 2013 and outlines the requirements for the program. Navy personnel are serving in the program in 78 countries. Interested candidates are required to first contact their community detailer to discuss the Navy Attaché Program. Candidates must be able to complete their attaché tour prior to potentially failing to select for the next paygrade twice. For more information, contact your community manager.
