I was told the age limit is 35. I'm 34 now so I didn't have much time to think about it. I leave for training in Cape May July 10th. I was assigned to CG Station Barnegat Light N.J. As a Petty Officer Third Class / Mk 3 for a reserve contract of 6 years.

I'm 39, so probably to late!!! I was an ET2, then they started shutting down all the Loran stations and it became very difficult to advance due to not enough ET jobs and too many ET's running around when they eliminated the Loran jobs.... You'll like it, it's a really great branch of the service. Very small in numbers which means closer knit groups....

Good Luck!!! I'm sure we'll see you around, like the rest of us, can never get boating out of your system...

I would never say Too Late. When I was at Fort Dix being processed I was the second oldest The oldest was a 42 year old male nurse who was there to head into the Army. They waived his age, and were processing him as an officer. He was going to be an OR nurse in the Army over in Iraq. he said he always wanted to be in a MASH type setting and after working or's and er's in the city he wanted to do it.

Congrats man..
I have met and known my share of Coasties.. The service treated them all very well. I haven't met one that was not happy being in the CG...

I did a lot of work with CG Maimi when I was doing boat lifts.
Great people..

Please remamber one thing though..

My paperwork is good, and I have all my safety gear on board... So no need to stop me.
