    I am prior service Army Active Duty, and I'm interested in joining the Coast Guard Active Duty.
    I did 3 years of service, my job was 92Y (Supply Specialist) and left as an E-4.
    Would like to know since i did Supply in the Army, can it be transfer over to the Coast Guard as SK?
    I look at the description, and it sounds the same to me.

    If so, how long will the packet take to be approve?

    Furthermore will I have to go to Boot Camp with the CG, and will I keep my rank?

    Last, i am open to going anywhere. I would love to go oversees. Like Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam and such.
    I like to surf, so a place where i can get some good waves would be awesome.

    Thank You

    Hey there Justin,
    I'm not the best person to answer this but since you've been waiting patiently since July I'll try to point you in the right direction. First off, you need to speak with a recruiter. Some of the rules change from time to time and I'm CG Auxiliary and I'm my recruiting is focused on the Academy, trying to get kids to sign up to be officers. Even so, I'll do what I can to steer you right. First up, where are you? I'll try to find out what recruiter you should speak with. Also, did you get any special qualifications before you got out of the Big Green Machine? What were the circumstances of your discharge? What have you been doing since you got out?

    If you'd like to eMail me I can be reached at VicNaz1@aol.com.
    Remember, all I can do is try to steer you in the right direction. Your desire to travel and surf and get back "in" is all do-able I think but you need to be going the right direction first.

    Cool

    You won't be able to enter as an active duty SK. SK is not on the Open Rate List, meaning it is not a critical job. In a best case scenario, you would be able to join as an E-3, going through the normal 8 weeks of basic training. After that, you would go to your first duty station for a minimum of four months. At that point, you could place your name on the A school list, and wait to go to school for the job of your choice, provided that you qualify for it on your ASVAB, which you will have to take again, along with your MEPS physical.

    As far as your prior service, what was your discharge code on your DD214? If it is anything other than an RE-1, the Coast Guard will not be able to process you.

    I hope this helps.
