    If you want New Orleans you have to request D8. That is the largest district in the Coast Guard. Requesting that you can get North Dakota, too. So be careful with that and understand where you might end up. May I ask why you would like to go to New Orleans? We were stationed there right out of OCS.

    I do agree there is a lot of fun to be had there... God knows we had a ball! however, fun can lead to a lot of mistakes in some cases. Just be careful and if you get assigned there don't have TOO MUCH fun. The CG doesn't appreciate trouble early in a career. Not saying you would find trouble but trouble has a way of seeking out Coasties. LOL

    As far as my dream sheet goes...D8=Grand Isle. I would not be the first of my family to get stuck there for his non-rate tour.
    To qoute their unit page: "The town of Houma has all the retail stores, restaurants, and services you would expect to find in a small city. Houma is 90 minutes from the base."

    I was raised in the sticks, but not those sticks.
    So you could get NOLA, you could get ND...or you could get Grand Isle.
    Your passion for what you do will set you free.

    Congratulations! You will love the city, it is a lot of fun. We lived there for 18 months. During Mardi Gras find out about getting on the CG float and actually be IN a Mardi Gras parade. That was the best waste of a tax return we ever did!!!!!
