    Hi, I just recently EASd from the Corps in July after 4.5 years of service. Two tours in Iraq & Afghan. I got out an E4. I am looking into the Coast Guard. It has always sparked an interest of mine.

    I am just looking for any insight on this process. I was told I could get some good info on this board.
    I was a heavy equip. operator, so I know I will probably have to retrain.

    I have a wife and a daughter, no debt issues. & an RE - 1A code.
    if this is possible how soon would I be looking at potentially to get active, stationed, housed etc? 
    Thanks a lot for any insight.

    Start applying now. You'll be coming back in as an E-3 if you're selected. The wait right now could be 1-2 years. Good luck!
