    Me and my fiancè were thinking of getting married before we both join the coast guard. The reason being is that someone told us that we would never be separated if we were married. Does that mean stationed same place, living same place? Or is this not true at all?

    Not true at all. I've told this before, I'll tell it again. Good friends of ours were married Coasties. She was a YN1, he was an AETC. They didn't really care if they were together, they both just wanted Alaska. Vicky got Valdez, Alaska. Darryl got AirSta Clearwater, Florida. They were on their respective twilight tours and planned to retire in Alaska. So no, there is no guarantee you'll be assigned together. The Coast Guard tries but it is needs of the service, not needs of the couple.

    They won't ever station you both on the same cutter or at a unit with less than 60 people. The majority of places nonrates can be stationed meet one of those 2 criteria. Just be aware of that.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.
