    Hello all. I was wanting info regarding the Panama City FL station as well as surronding area stations.

    My wife and I recently went on our honeymoon in FL and while there came across the Naval bases of Pensacola and Panama City and were informed that there were also CG stations at these locations. I am in the process of getting everything rolling to get in with the CG and am attempting to do my homework prior to getting in on the different options of areas where we could be stationed.

    So my question is:
    Anyone who has been, will be, or is stationed at Pensacola or PC FL possibly tell me a bit about the station? How it is compared to other stations. The likes and dislikes. Was this your first duty station or did you have to wait. ETC....

    You still haven't gone to boot right? Well, I'm going to tell you. DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT get set on Panama City FL. The chances of you getting it are small. You can request a small boat station in FL, but chances are so is a large chunk of your company. Maybe you'll get lucky and get stationed there. But you will only get a choice of which districts you would like to get stationed in. And you may very well not get any 4 of those districts.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    You get to choose districts or area's in districts or request specific stations? I was under the impression that you get to choose a few different areas that you'd like to be placed in?!?

    It used to be you picked 12 ships/stations, it was specific. It has changed now to 3 districts. Panama City is in D8. D8 covers from Panama City to New Mexico, to North Dakota to the far south western tip of Pennsylvania (no great lakes, that is D9). So you can ask for D8, in the notes you can say you would like Panama City... however, they might give you D8 and station you in Illinois on a river tender.

    It is nearly impossible to make a specific request, especially one so small as PC, and expect to get it. The first station, just wing it and love it. You will learn a lot and then head to A school. So it isn't as though you are going to be there 4 or 5 years.
