She finished her degree in drafting as her understudy for architecture, but then the bottom dropped out of construction etc. and she found herself competing with people who had years of experience for the same jobs. She's very strong and highly adaptable and her mind is mechanically geared but she also loves, loves the water. So...she's decided to give the Coast Guard her all instead.

Re: A New Coastie !

I too wish her luck and a long, good career...

Unfortunately many USCG jobs are no where's near the water much of the time...if that's her's gonna take patience if her first assignment is land bound. During my 23 yrs to lead too many distraught young'ns when their dream was more than a few years away and after "a" school at best.

Same with my son in the Navy...thinks a year or two after boot camp and he should be on easy street....oooops...

That's absolutely true. My dad was a Coastie and he worked in the marine industry all his life. Apparently it rubbed off on me.
