They say that the coast guard has the highest re-enlistment percentage of any branch... which means they're doing something right, I guess.

Some are pretty cool.

The rescue divers, helicopter snipers (shooting engine blocks on drug boats from the air), and the ship-boarding teams occasionally get into gunfights on the boats. Those are about the only jobs I'd be interested in.

Fixed. From my first-hand knowledge as a USCG boarding team member.

It's not uncommon (at least at my previous units) for boarding teams to conduct an Extended Initial Safety Inspection with guns drawn, depending on the context/situation. However, I'm struggling to think of the last time a boarding team fired a shot during a boarding. The last FATAL stateside shooting that I know of which involved a Coastie didn't take place during a boarding at all...it was assisting local law enforcement, if memory serves....it was before my time in the USCG. Anyone have more information on it than me?

On a separate note, fryingpan, are you at A school, or an instructor?

I remember camping out on the old helicopter landing fields at Camp May back in the day. Went on a tour of some of the cutters that were docked at the time. This was...um...wow, I think 13yrs ago. haha

Good deal...so I assume you're either a GM or an ET then? One of my buddies went through CIWS school about a year ago. He's an ET on one of the PACAREA cutters. As for me, I'll probably never get underway again...I was on an 87 as a non-rate, then went MST. I graduated OCS in Dec but decided to take a Prevention/Inspections career path. I miss it though...

GMs don't go through WSF, so yes, I'm an ET. Sadly, all the regular ETs are complete goobers. I've always wanted to go FT, but the CG did away with that rate so I had to become an ET first.

This. Talk to a recruiter as soon as possible (if you haven't already). Go to www.gocoastguard.com to find recruiters and lots of info. Retention/reenlistment is at the highest point in a long time due to the economy, so the wait to get to boot camp is probably going to be significant. Do some research online before you talk to him/her, so that you have some idea of the rating (i.e. specialty) you want. I'm assuming you are considering enlisting, rather than an officer career, right? There is a big difference in the accession processes between officer and enlisted (I've gone through both, so I know firsthand).

I spent 3 years at Cape May, NJ (where we run boot camp), and I was astounded by the number of recruits who couldn't pass the physical fitness test. Be sure you can run 1.5 miles (in 12:51 or less if you're 29 or younger) and swim 100 yds with freestyle or sidestroke.

Hit me up if you have any other questions!

I did ask a recruiter about scheduling a meeting with him so he could answer a few of my questions, but he said that he doesn't meet with anyone unless it is a special occasion and gave me a list of websites to research. He also said that it is very difficult to get in, but didn't go any deeper than that. I will ask him a few more questions, but my question is what else besides being in shape can help myself be selected to be in the Coast Guard? I talked to one of my teachers who is ex CG, and he said that it helps a lot to score high on your ASVAB test. (Which I did)

Besides a good ASVAB score, any sort of post-high school education will make you look good (and may net you a signing bonus...I got $6k for having a bachelor's). Your eligibility for ratings is determined by your ASVAB score, so if you already scored well, that will help you. A clean record will help, but having a blemish or two on your record won't necessarily keep you out, depending on why you have been in trouble. When the recruiter is asking about any arrests, legal trouble, etc. be honest...one of the guys in my boot camp company lied about his criminal past; they found out right after lunch, and he was gone before dinner.

I would keep bugging the recruiter, even if he says he won't meet with you. It's his job to present the USCG in an attractive light. If he keeps blowing you off, go online and try to find another recruiter. That being said, retention is extremely high, as I mentioned before, so don't expect to go to boot camp in the next few months. Heck, when I enlisted they were trying to get everyone possible, and it took me about 3 months before I was put on the bus.

Long story short, keep pestering the recruiter. It'll show him that you're persistent and genuinely interested in joining. Also, start filling out the paperwork you'll need to submit (especially the SF-86). It will make you look good when you finally meet him if you can hand the recruiter a folder with all the requisite forms.

Do you know if there are any good fields near Tracen Yorktown? I'm going to be there for Marine Inspector school, and I don't want to go for a month without playing at all.

I dont know anywhere close that has xball or 7man practice, but I know that Bethel Battlefield is close. I think they do streetball and woodsball.
