    i have a discharge (uncharacterized) with Anxiety with no other symptoms, and a letter from the psychologist in basic saying it should not be looked at negatively, and should still be considered for re-enlistment.  What would the chances of getting a waiver accepted?  i tried re submitting after a year and my recruiter at the same said that they were above their quota already, but to try again in a year or so.  I am still going to continue to try.  I have letters from therapists saying i am perfectly fine.  as well as letters of recommendations, a letter of reference from my self. and paperwork from the previous recruiter of everything that i need.  I have everything ready to go and am very organized and prepared. I attended fire academy's, gone through fire season fighting wild fires with the US Forest Service.  Any suggestions would be great.  thank you for your time.

    I would not get my hopes up if I were you. I wouldn't even consider a waiver possible, and as a recruiter I would not attach my name to one for this issue. Was the discharge during Coast Guard boot camp, another service or after boot?

    You can keep trying if your recruiter is willing to work with you, but I agree with JBraz. I have far too many people who are looking for a shot at this particular brass ring. I'm not going to pursue a waiver for someone who was given the opportunity once already.

    Brody,

    Thank you for being classy. I know their answers were probably not what you wanted to hear but you took their answers and respected those answers. They are recruiters, I am not. But as the moderator on this forum you proved a little something to me just by accepting their words with class. I wish you the best and I hope you do well.

    I agree completely with JBraz and Gears. I commend you for trying, but me personally, I would not put my name on that waiver request. It's just too risky.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    I would encourage you to look at other services and keep in mind that you could possibly join us after your first tour. If that route doesn't interest you maybe joining the Aux and getting your feet wet a little will show a recruiter that you mean business. I have seen one person get approved to go back to boot, they lasted 3 weeks the 2nd time, so you are facing an up hill battle. Keep your chin up though, thanks for keeping an open mind.

    I want to thank you all again for all of your answers and taking time to answers my questions.  Im going to look into other services, if it allows me to be in the coast guard in the future that would be amazing.  Just being able to serve is what means the most.  would love to be part of the USCG, however if it takes a little more push then thats what it takes   Again thank you all for your time, and support.  ill get there

    Good afternoon, it has been a little over a year since my last post. Since i have moved to Oregon, completed additional seasons of wildland fire fighting, and am currently working as a volunteer fire fighter, and as and EMT on a full time 911 ambulance. I regards to my original post, i was trying to see if anything has changed and if my chances may be any better. I am aware of risk of a recruiter putting there name on my paperwork, however i can assure them that i am worth the signature. I will do whatever it takes to push paperwork and prove my self. I am in great physical and mental shape. I deal with stressful environments on a daily basis. I have left a voice mail with the recruiting office in Norwalk CA. unfortunately i am in Medford Oregon where there are not any Coast Guard recruiters near by. I am grateful for the time any of you take out of your busy schedule to answer my question. If any recruiter can help me, and possibly give me a chance even just to explain and look through my papers. that would be amazing. Thank you for your time. Have a great day.

    The recruiting climate has only gotten worse since your last post.

    You beat the odds once, you were given a shot at this particular brass ring, and you walked away. In the year since you left Cape May hundreds of stellar individuals have stood on the yellow triangles and successfully completed boot camp with no problems. Thousands more are waiting for a chance to go. I just don't see it happening. With the current reduction in force and the high demand for accession into the CG I see no reason to give anyone a second chance.

    I completely understand where you are coming from. It makes sense. In life people do make mistakes. That happened to be my mistake when a family situation came up. However im aware of that and learned and will continue to push and not give up. Some of the great people were given second chances and proved them selves and i wish and hope i can do the same. Im seeing more and more its an up hill battle, but just because its a struggle doesn't mean I will quit. I appreciate your honesty and not sugar coating anything, i respect that, and honor that. It will just continue to fuel me to thrive and fight harder. Hopefully i can stand there again one day, and represent the USCG and prove self. If you or anyone ever knows anything that could benefit please let me know. Thank you again.

    Congratulations. This is why our recruiters tell people the current climate of recruiting and what their office might or might not accept... But you have to speak to your specific recruiter. Because they are men & women, not machines, answers can be different when there is room for difference. Some have absolute medical conditions that cannot be accepted, waivered, overlooked... but others, always try. The answer is no if you give up. So good luck. Please let us know how it goes.
