I’m seriously thinking about trying the Coast Guard OCS program and I’m wondering if anyone is in the coast guard or has done it and can give me some real insight into it. Heres some background:
I’m 22 (on wensday), graduating in may and everyone I know has been a real pain in the ass about what I’m going to do with the rest of my life. I really feel like hoffman in the graduate. “Plastics…”
I’m going to have a degree in Political Science - concentration in public law and a minor in history. I’ve thought about teaching but I’m not really enthusiastic. Also thought about police/fire, taken the tests and am now just waiting to see what happense. Well I don’t want to just sit around and see what happens.
I love the water, grew up on an island, spent weekends on my fathers boat, am a PADI Divemaster and love to sail (looking into buying my first boat, a 16’ hobbie cat). I don’t want to be behind a desk. Like most people here at T-Nation I like using my body. I also realize that I still have some boyish qualities, I feel like some military training would do me some good and really turn me into a man.
I’ve looked at the websites, the forms and found a recruiter in my area. I just need to talk it over with some ppl in my life (like my parents) before I make a decision. I came on here to get help, hear stories and get any additional information I can. Ya know the kind you won’t find on the websites. Thanks for reading guys.
