    Hi guys, as it says in the title I’m trying to decide which branch I should choose.
    I’m a college graduate with plans for law enforcement after time in the service.

    I look forward to learning what I can from the knowledgeable and experienced people on here.

    Welcome! This CG is a great branch to serve in. My boyfriend currently serves is having a good experience. I know that what makes the CG different is there is more saving lives directly, and you are enforcing the laws at seas. At my prom last year I had my boyfriend attend in uniform. An officer called him over by his last name (upon spotting his nameplate) and told him he was a BM in the CG. My boyfriend asked him how the CG set up his experience as an officer and the man replied saying that a lot of what he learned in the process of becoming an officer was similar to what he learned in the CG. Figured I'd share you this story since you mentioned wanting to go into law enforcement. Seems the CG could set you up well for your career path! Best of luck!
    Keep Calm and Love a Coastie!

    Just so you're aware, the type of law enforcement you'll do in the CG bears little resemblance to what you'll do as a civilian cop
