Is it true that the AFQT minimum is 60 now? I remember my buddy having a hard time trying to get in. He scored a 50, then they changed the regs to 60 now is it?

It's entirely dependent on the office. For us we have no set score that you have to meet. We require that you qualify for at least one job. A score in the 50s would do that. We hire people based on the " whole person concept ". Not just a high test score

A lot of the jobs we have don't go out to sea very often. It's a good deal for some and others would be better suited in another branch. I tell everyone straight up. If you were 28 or younger you could sign up at your nearest office or if your older there is always the Coast Guard Auxillary

I recommend USCG to every squared away kid I know. Yes it's different in today's times then when I was in, however they have some of the best duty locations in the world.

Is it still best at this time to tell the kids to sign up reserve then school then transfer to active?

I worked with some Coast Guardsmen in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. They were a good outfit. We got to go to Puerto Rico for a few days on leave. Don't knock it until you have been there. It was a great place to visit.

XxWoodshunterXx check your PM's

There is a lot of ex-Coasties here. Suprising since I don't run into too many gun people in the CG. This gives me hope. Normally, I catch a lot of flak

Victor,

You should be laughing out loud. When I came in, I requested two 210' class cutters in the Gulf of Mexico that did primarily drug enforcement. My third choice was any 210' cutter in the gulf. I got orders to the 210' cutter in Kodiak (since removed to Florida). When I came up for re-assignment, my first two choices were LE shore jobs in Miami and Honolulu. My third choice was "anything south of the 33rd parallel." They wanted me to take a LE shore job in Juneau (I had seized the first Russian fishing trawler taken into U.S. custody for fisheries violations). The detailer explained, "you gotta work with me. For your first assignment you requested a 210' on the gulf, and that's exactly what you got (shame on me for not being more specific about which gulf.)

I found a provision in the personnel regs that prevented a member from being involuntarily assigned back-to-back orders out of the continental U.S. except by the members request and (proving that I was probably the dumbest ensign in the CG at the time) quoted that provision to the detailer. After several weeks of conversation, he advised me that only two positions remained open on the assignment slate, the LE job in Juneau and a financial controller position for the NOAA National Data Buoy project in St. Louis. He conceded that he couldn't force me to take the Juneau job, then he noted he could force the St. Louis job on me, and that I knew nothing about finance. The light bulb finally came on and I accepted the Juneau job.

The detailer then told me that I needed to formally request the position, and he quoted me the personnel regs. I had to make a formal written request for the position.

I worked out real well. I came to love Alaska and I had a very good assignment in Juneau. I left active duty after that tour to return to local police work, but remained in the reserves (with a couple of active duty periods) until I retired with 24 years in.

drifter,

We have been waiting for slots to be released for reservists but as of today we are still waiting and have no openings. You could get started with the process but there aren't any promises that the job you want will come open.
Sounds crappy and it is. Once the jobs are released I'll let you know.
Jobs for active duty is much brighter, we are starting to fill slots for the upcoming fiscal year.
IMO, the best program we have going right now is called the CSPI program. In a nutshell it pays for your junior and senior years of college and then you go to Officer Candidate school and become and Officer. They also pay you to go to school your last two years. You have to be enrolled at a school that is at least 51 percent minority based but you yourself do not have to be.
Most, if not all the Cal-state schools qualify.

How's it looking for prior-service (Marines)? My unit is being disbanded (slowly) and command has said they will entertain inter-service transfer packages in lieu of MOS lat-moves.

I was being a bit facetious. I retired from the CG back in 2003. Kodiak: nothing like vertical snow. (Been there, done that. I did three years on the Mellon; we used to pull in there regularly).

When? My cousin and her husband were out there. They LOVED it. They left AK I think 2 1/2 years ago.

They are in a light house property now. He completely lucked out on that.

I was kidding I just had bad luck with duty stations. Always wanted small boat and got ship instead. Took early out in 01 but was thinking it might be fun to go reserves up in Washington area if possible spots open and they let me re-enlist

I'm torn between asking more about the HS and MK fields. I want to get an EMT's license but I also want to has a degree in Mechanical engineering. Plus I've wanted to be a marine since I was a wee lad.

Maybe I could hop in for a four year, pop out in better shape then use those four years in the Coast Guard to help me smooth the way into the Corps? Is this feasible?

Future Unsure, Since you have always wanted to be a Marine I would steer you in that direction.
ME3PO, I can put you in the reserves but you wouldn't work in Colton. You would be working your one weekend in Long Beach or San Diego. Your choice.

infringed711, We take all prior service, we actually subtract your prior service years from your age. So If your 30 and too old for active duty but spent 4 years in the Marines we would consider you to be 26 and eligible.

It's an extreme long shot unless you have a stem degree. There are also direct commissioning programs. You can read about all of them on gocoastguard.com

Lol... they told me I couldn't tape out. Sorry I weigh more than a high school kid. I'm looking at reserve options too. I have some VBSS experience... anything in reserves for that?

Correct, for enlistement purposes we don't tape. Once your in we do......I stopped trying to figure out the who, what, when and why a long time ago. It will only drive you batty. Strangely enough we have a higher weight standard in pounds. So we lose some to the other branches that want to tape and we gain some that qualify with us due to our weight limit being higher.
No matter what armed service your considering, to me, it's worth losing the weight to go into the branch you want. There are some distinct differences and taking the easy way out initially will potentially haunt you for the next four plus years
