    So I screwed up big time but seems like my amazing recruiter fixed it again. So I went to MEPS without my social security card and well got turned away. But I get to go again Thursday keeping my ship date. So I DEP in and sign contract Thursday.

    This has been such a long and grueling process I just want to be in so i know it's for real. I'm glad to see someone else going same day as me, I am very excited and nervous.

    Hey, I feel you man. Its been a 9 month process to get here so I most CERTAINLY feel your pain. When you go to DEP in on Thursday, be formal but comfortable. Its a big day for you as on that day you are a part of the military. They remind you after you swear in that you are about to sign a contract that bounds you for however long your enlistment period is. This, my friend, is for real. You did it. After that, its sitting and waiting to go to basic. Enjoy your last month of civilian life bro!!! See you at TRACEN Cape May

    Good afternoon fellow DEPers.  I will be meeting up with you guys on the 17th.  I am leaving from San Diego.  I was supposed to go on the 26th of last month, but there was some sort of mix up.  I'm super excited and wish you all the best of luck.  We'll be going in as individuals but getting out as a team, that's what I'm talking about.

    I am pumped. It's been nearly a year wait and it is finally time. kiraterbecki, don't worry about the pushups, by the end you'll be able to do more than enough. One week to go until I get to MEPS to start the process. Hope everybody is ready to get yelled at and set straight. From then on out, it's the Coast Guard way, all the way.

    Damned straight!! I am so ready. If I can survive living 18 years with my mother, the cc's should be a walk in the park hahaha. I would much rather deal with them than her.

    Where are you guys hoping to get stationed? I myself am hoping for the northwest somewhere (district 13), otherwise maybe district 11 or district 1. I just don't want to end up in San Diego, that's where I am at right now.

    I'd would like to be D9 at a small boat station. That would be ideal for me. But, I knew full well when I signed up that I would have to go where they tell me so....to each his own.
