I’ve been out of the Navy for 2.5 years now and I’m pursuing the army. If I get in do I have to do all of boot camp or just some condensed version of it?

The Army has a different way of doing things then the Navy. Have fun.

I just completed the process of going Blue to Green. You will have to do the full 10 week BCT as well as AIT afterwards. Do not expect to be treated any different than the privates just because of your rank. I completed BCT as a Staff Sergeant and was treated the same as a private in every aspect. I wish you the best of luck and remember that it's just a check in the box. It will ultimately make you a better soldier in the long run.

Then again I do hear I can get in as a specialist due to my TIG.

Your TIG will restart for your respective rank since you have no time in the Army. You can be granted E4 if you have a bachelor's degree or higher.

SSG (Join to see) It's obviously circumstantial. Each battery and 1SG within BCT will have their own standards. I was treated like a private while NCO's in different batteries got their phones and special privileges. I simply stated to not expect special treatment.

Talk to your recruiter. The gut answer is yes. Sort of works like this: Navy and Air Force going to Army or Marines and you have to attend BCT.
