If you love a challenge, love to travel, and want to be a part of something bigger than yourself, the Coast Guard is for you! You're sure to find a speciality that fits your personality. Advancing in ranks occurs faster than other branches of the US military requiring only a minimum time in your pay grade and successful completion of knowledge-based exams. You can be stationed on ships large and small, small boat stations, air stations, command centers, or land-based support units in almost every state in the US including Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Bahamas! Healthcare covers yourself with nothing out of pocket and almost nothing out of pocket for dependents. Tuition assistance makes earning a degree while serving cost-free and earn VA benefits upon discharge to further or begin your education.

A career in United States Coast Guard is a rewarding and exciting job. It has taken me all over the world, I have saved peoples lives, provided security for the President of the United States, prevented terrorist attacks, seized numerous tons of drugs, and written policy for the organization that effect over 270 small boat stations and ships. I have enjoyed every part of it so far. The Coast Guard is a family first organization they honestly care about the well being of my dependents just as much as me, the leaders of the Coast Guard understands that my job is inherently dangerous and if my mind is not on the task at hand then people can die, therefore your work life balance is very high on their agenda. I also like the numerous jobs available e.g. (electrician, operational specialist, mechanic, IT, and many more) where you will be trained on the cutting edge of your trade. There is nothing I would change about the organization I feel it is headed in the right direction.
I started out after high school not knowing what I really wanted to do. I found the Coast Guard while commercially fishing in Alaska. Shortly after returning home I did some research to find out more about the career. I decided to join and 20 years later am about to retire. The career provided tons of options. The missions we conduct are very easy to be supportive of. I was able to have a very diverse career and tailor it as I wanted. The starting pay is around $40,000 and within five years you make over $60,000. You have the option to retire with 50% pay at 20 years and collect it right after retiring. Having a family and everything that comes with it was very is being employed by the Coast Guard. Medical and dental is completely paid for you and your family.
