I am exploring all my options before I make the decision to reenlist or not and I am wondering if I'd have to change rates in order to become a Navy Reservist. Not sure how a submariner would translate, if it does, into the reserves.

SFRC -- Submarine Force Reserve Component. There are 4 branches, Under Water Operations (ASW), Submarine Repair, Security Force, and the rescue sub something. I was part of ASW and I loved it! There are a lot of things in the Reserves you might enjoy. You have to look for something that interests you and a unit that actually does something, there's so many things to do. The problem submariners have in the Reserves is being attached to a unit that justs drills. You might enjoy SPAWAR, they do robotics and drones, lot of submariners there. Don't put yourself in a box.
I fixed boats for 10 years and I understand the community. I was a Nuke and had to come back to the Reserves as a YN. Everybody needs a YN so I was exposed to different communities. I am a very well rounded sailor!
My favorite unit hands down is UWO.

You would keep your rate and specialty for subs, as far as I know you would not deploy on or with one, there was a nav ET in the unit I drill with, and one of our officers is a subs guy.
