    Just got my orders for AST A School Jan 5th.

    I wanted to say thank you to everyone on this site for all the help and encouragement throughout my process of joining the CG, being at my first duty station, and now taking a shot at my dream rate. Glad that you all have been apart of my CG journey.

    Thanks again,
    J

    I know some guys that got orders to that class as well. I'd say good luck but not much of it is about luck. Have at it!

    Congratulations and good luck! You'll be leaps and bounds ahead of your classmates if you know AST is a rating, not a rate.

    Oh my goodness! Orrrrrr you might be the 2nd person in the Coast Guard who cares about rating/rate terminology. I would pay money to watch you tell an instructor about rating and rates during a pool evolution.

    Did you make it through A School? AST is too my dream rate! It's been a wild journey thus far for me, but I am finally getting in to pursue my path!

    Hey thanks for wondering how things went ThenicsFaster.

    Long story short, I made it a month and dropped out.

    I do not regret going AST and it changed my life.
    Keep up the ambition. Know it's all heart that gets these guys/gals through.
    Most people fail, but it's the ones that keep going and stick through it that end up making it through, no matter the size or strength.

    I had a change of heart when I dropped as I found out my dad's cancer came back. I was stationed near home and got to be with him. I met my wife, wanted to get out and then decided I did love the Coast Guard and wanted to stay in. Now I'm an IT3 and loving it.

    If you want to follow up I do make videos on YouTube where I keep up to date. Check out Military Journeymen.

    Best of luck and will be praying for your success.

    -Julian
