    hello! I am a new member to the coast guard community, my fiancé is currently in boot camp in cape may. 
    We have been in contact through letters and he was very serious about keeping what I want in mind while putting in his request wish list. However, he sent me a letter Sunday saying that he was given the opportunity to be in the coast guard honor guard and to let him know asap if this was a good option for us because he would be requesting on Thursday. Unfortunately, I received this letter on that Thursday so was not able to respond that opportunity at all. (Which I completely want for him and would be a best case scenario for our situation) .. I'm worried he didn't put this on his wish list because my previous letters gave other options about where he should go. 

    So I do not know if he put fort Myers on his wish list since he did not receive feedback from me, but if he did not and gets my letter that says he should, is it possible to change his request and put that instead? 

    Also I know it is an honor to be asked to join the honor guard so I'm hoping he was persuaded into choosing this, right?

    Typically you can't change your wish list once its put in at boot camp. I don't think there would be an opportunity for him to do that. The only way that he would get selected into the honor guard if he didn't put it on his list is if they were really short handed and needed people. They would then go back to the CC's and ask if anybody would reconsider the honor guard and they would probably have a couple people out of the ones they told qualified that they would prefer. Thats how that works. The honor guard doesn't want somebody who didn't want to go there. Its a big commitment and a lot of work once you get there. If somebody doesn't have their heart in it, it won't work out too well.
    I doubt there was any persuading to join after they came in and talked to him. The CC's don't really have much to do with that and the representatives from the honor guard are long gone by then.

    I'm locking this thread. Mkelly's answer is perfect. Also, you've asked this in multiple locations. Ask once and wait for answers all in one place. Asking in multiple locations just didn't make sense. But what MKelly says, perfect.
