Hi my name is Ryan. Im a coastie son but my father is now retired after 22 years in the service. His Boot Camp class was Uniform 121. He served on the Legare, Block Island, at Little Creek and in Yorktown doing something with drug and alochol awareness training (he traveled all over the place) there are more but I cant remember at the time.
I am very interested in joining the coast gaurd but I have a lot of work to do. I am a senior at Longwood University in Farmville, VA (no not the game it really exists) I should be graduating some time soon with a BA degree in History with a minor in Homeland Security. Im somewhere around 20 credits to getting that done. Also there is the weight and fitness issue. I have to lose 55lbs to make the cut and more if I want to be under. But I am dedicated and I just have to stick with what is working.
Thanks for reading and maybe I'll have some insite on military family life.
