    Hello all My name is matthew. I work for the TSA department of homeland security. I also Im a a college student with about 100 hours on my way to a criminal justice degree. I am 26 years old. I know that is a little old but if i joined today people would think i was 14. Anyways I have been applying for jobs in federal law enforcemnet for a long time now. A guy at work noticed the types of jobs I was shooting for he told me join the coast guard they do everything you want. When I looked they do. What are my chances of working patrol in the gulf of mexico? Have I missed my window? I would love to hear it straight foward from you guys and not a recruiter. Shoot it straight. Thank you!

    Just discovered this site and your post is 4 months old so you may no longer need any info, but here it is, anyway!  We have a friend who joined the USCG last spring and is currently on a cutter heading for Costa Rica on a 2 month drug busting mission.  He loves the Coast Guard and from everything we know, it sounds like a good route to take.  My son is about to leave for boot camp and then A school to become a Port Sec Specialist.  I think you would find a lot of law enforcement opportunities/experience if you decided to join.  That is his reason for joining, too, as he is also interested in a law enforcement career.  Good luck!  (Check out the USCG website because it contains a ton of info.)

    Ghost town around here........ Lol... Okay... Here's what's going on that I just learned about... You might not have missed your window, but the problem is that if you have a bunch of kids, like we do, or something else going on, that requires a waiver, it might be difficult to get in! I've been hearing from Army wives that want their husbands to go Coastie, and they can't because their husbands would need a waiver, because they have three children... or more... (where's the eek emoticon?) Anyway, good luck and I hope you get back and let us know what you decided to do!
    My Prayer...

    Thank you to the powers that be for keeping my husband in the SE US.  Please God watch over him, as after 16 years u/w land is a strange thing to him...
