    Hello CG World,

    I'm Jimmy and I reside in Los Angeles. After a few months of research I decided to contact a CG recruiter earlier today. I'm interested in the Maritime Enforcement program mostly because I love law enforcement and I love firearms but I hear there's like a 3-4 year waiting list so if I can't enter that program from the jump start I'd be interested in any of the aviation fields more than likely AMT. What I'm hoping to get out of the CG is an exciting and challenging career that would provide me the opportunity to start and maintain a family down the road and to have a Corvette in my driveway. Just for juggles I'm a thrill seeker who loves an adrenaline rush and I love to push my body and my mind to the limits.

    Welcome aboard. You aren't going to get any rating right from jump street (with the exception of Food Specialist). AMT has a long wait as well. Please be prepared for that. In the FAQ section of this forum there is a link to the A School (sorry I can't link it from my phone, too difficult). You can look at that and see the current wait times for all schools.

    @Chief, I love watching those videos. The Coast Guard Recruiting Facebook page posted one recently where the crew did a full roll in a 47-footer. Awesome! BM was my 2nd choice to ME, but with the low chance of "surfing" as a reserve, I opted for something I was a little more familiar with...plus I can try for coxswain later on down the road.

    Welcome Jimmy! Best of luck in your pursuits.
