    What if Your son/daughter meets another coastie and they get married.  They are not the same rate, rank or company and they are stationed 3000 miles apart.  Does the CG move one to be stationed with the other or move both of them somewhere else or they have to have a long distance marriage? Just wondering,...

    If they get married while stationed that many miles apart they either have to wait until one of them is in trasfer season and then another way is to request a hardship move, and hopefully one of the units will release the member and then they can transfer.
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    Coast Guard assignment officers will TRY to keep them stationed within a reasonable distance from each other when it's their time to transfer, but there are no guarantees. The needs of the service will always come first. Usually it works out, but there are always cases where it can't.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    Ive seen it happen a couple times. They TRY to station the two parties within 50 miles of eachother, which you wouldnt think is very hard considering wherever there's water, there's usually a Coast Guard establishment of some sort. But a lot has to be looked at and your rate can sometimes get in the way. For instance, my Fiancee is (or will be in 3 weeks) a YN, and she could get stationed in Topeka, Kansas...miles from any large body of water. Now if I were an MK, I'd most likely either have to work in an out-of-rate billet, or be what they call a geo-bachelor where we're married but one of us is stationed far away. Now my Fiancee is about to go to her next duty station in Arlington, VA, which is a 4 year billet. Now if it takes me a year from now to get into the Coast Guard (which it may) then she has 3 years left at Arlington, and if they put me at a small boat station or a cutter somewhere up there, and her billet is up and it's time to move her, then they'd most likely short stay me and cut my time at my unit short. This is what Ive been told by a few Coasties I know.

    If you are already married, then they would try to co-locate you. If you are only engaged, the CG has no obligation to try and work that out. When two members are married, they really have to sacrifice where they would like to go, so that they can be stationed together. The Portsmouth, VA has a lot of CG units, and is easier to co-locate memers than places like Wilmington, NC. So although you may not want to be there, you may not have much choice in the matter.
