    A few years ago I was considering joining the Coast Guard when I took a year of from college. I ultimately decided to finish college first and then apply if that was still what I wanted to do. Well I graduated last May and I couldn't think of anything I'd rather do, so I began getting things in order to apply for the Coast Guard. I just got in contact with a recruiter and submitted my application on October 1st.

    Considering, I just recently turned 26 at the end of September, hopefully, everything goes smoothly after MEPS and the ASVAB and I can leave for boot within a year. Being 26 I'm pretty close to the age cut-off, but I shouldn't need any waivers, and hopefully I did the right thing getting started on this right at the beginning of the new fiscal year.

    Good luck, Wes. I'm a fellow old fart (28) trying to enlist. As long as you get started talking to a recruiter now I think you will be ok. Just make sure to present yourself as the best applicant you can be!

    No worries, there are lots of old farts. Even 2 years ago, the average age of my company was 23. Good luck to you!

    Oh, that's good to hear. I was worried that if I'm accepted I'd be far above the average age at boot. I guess I'm not the only old man/lady trying to join, haha.
