So I have not enlisted (yet), but I am curious about what I would like to put down on my dream sheet for my first unit as a non-rate. I know it is definitely needs of the service, but there is always hopeful wishing. I just am curious to find out what life is like on a small boat station, such as duties, type of missions, typical work week (if there is one!) etc.
I would prefer to not get stationed on a cutter, but if I did then so be it. I want something that will give me lots of action and put me in the middle of some intense moments. I want to be part of a crew going out during an intense storm to rescue people! Sounds kinda cliche but that's why a lot of us love the Coast Guard, right?
If anyone who has experience could shed some light I would love to know more! Thanks.
