Reince Priebus, a former chief of staff to President Trump and Republican power broker, could join the Navy after a months-long process in which Defense Secretary Jim Mattis recommended him and a board of officers selected him as a reserve officer, according to defense officials and a memo obtained by The Washington Post. Priebus, 46, will be required to attend two weeks of training in Newport, R.I., and drill once a month as a reservist if commissioned. He would join a list of Navy reserve officers with political connections that include Sean Spicer, Trump's former press secretary, and Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton's former presidential campaign manager.

Looking to bolster his patriotic creds. After being way too old to ever see harm's way.
Probably wants to run for higher office based on this.

He was inspired by their theme song:

They want you, they want you
They want you as a new recruit
If you like adventure
Don't you wait to enter
The recruiting office fast
Don't you hesitate
There is no need to wait
They're signing up new seamen fast
Maybe you are too young
To join up today
Bout don't you worry 'bout a thing
For I'm sure there will be
Always a good navy
Protecting the land and sea
In the navy
