I'm on inactive reserve right now, through Nov 2013. I'm not quite sure they will call me up as I have a critical position civilian job.

I wasn't aware that everyone signs for _ active and 4 inactive. I know reserve units still get called up to deploy pretty frequently with every other branch but I don't know as much about the CG.
After boot camp, many people go to the fleet as a FN/SN/AN. some people get direct to a-school. not sure if they are still offering that though. Going to the fleet is better IMO unless you really know you want to do something already. it sucks to be at the bottom but it helps you in the long run and you get to experience the different rates first hand.
As far a the inactive reserve, don't worry about it. if it comes down to it the draft isn't far behind. so all you need to worry about is the 4-6 initial years that you want to sign up for.

Just think, we coulda seen ya on Coast Guard Florida had you been slightly east!

Good job though, good crew makes it easy. Have you done drops onto 87's? AirSta Port Angeles always asked us for help with their basket/swimmer drops and night ops.

Still unsure of why people with severe medical conditions or sick go out on a cruise. They keep us pretty busy down here as you know.

I have not, but I've scheduled a few other folks to do it. We only have a couple small boats down here and they stay pretty busy...so it is far more the exception then the rule.

This cold have been an unknown issue...but yeah...some folks don't think about the impact of their actions on others.

Get UW!!! Land duty is boring. Plus the sea time will help you with mk2.
Good luck with the rest of a-school

Brian, first off I am the EPO of Station Vallejo...great station. Tons to so in the surrounding area, you will learn a lot about Small boats (RBS, and RBM), LE and SAR. I have been on big cutters, patrol boats, and stations. It all depends on what YOU want. Look into every unit and make a choice that fits YOUR life and career goals. I have 5 years out of 13 on a boat and I am in a great position in my career and I get to spend a lot if time with my family. If you go to sea or to land based on what fits someone else's life you may be unhappy and that will reflect in your quality if work and motivation.

Shoot me an IM and I will give you my number if you have question.

Married? Kids? If neither then get underway on anything and learn from everyone, good and bad. Your unit is whatever you make it. Every one has people that bitch and moan and people that love it.
