I'm currently dropping out of college due to a sum total of a number of things (money, grades we're okay, but still below what i should be getting). I'm probably going to join the Coast Guard. I'd like to do their rescue swimmers program, but I'll wait to join until i figure out the pipeline for that. This isn't a spur of the moment decision, i did contemplate it before my year of college.

So anyone have advice for me? I heard to never admit an ability to type or cook.

I recommend not dying.

Good luck, I hope you stay safe

In the coast guard? His chances of dying are slim.



a large reason i'm joining the coast guard

although i should mention CG cutters and personel are in the persian gulf doing water security. A speedboat suicide bomber DID detonate near a Coast Guard speedboat sized crash and killed 3 last year.

Honestly I would prefer if you joined the Coast Guard. The other branches are fighting, in my opinion, a meaning less war. But hey, you gotta finish what you started right?

Is the Coast Guard putting together a cook book?


no, admitting an ability to type is a first class ticket to a clerk/secretary job. Admitting cooking competence puts you an a KP assignment. Or so i'm told by a buddy in the marines.

I was gonna say if you get bored you can build sandcastles....but you're joining the Coast Guard so nevermind.

Well, to be honest. I was just being courteous, I didn't read the thread.

I'm a little tired of everyone posting their life decisions and their dead pets memories on UG like we're going to support them or commend them for their decisions.

I so want to build that.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws
