    Has anyone been on USCG EAGLE? I am very interested in it.

    I know its used for cadet and OCS training. What would a non-rate be doing on it? Do many non rates get this billet straight out of training? It seems like a great opportunity to learn a lot of skills. 

    Thanks so much!

    I am not saying it is a 100% rule, and I know we have amazing people in our organization at all pay grades, but overwhelmingly the non-rates on the Eagle were advanced compared to most. Many had or were working on degrees, many were older than most non-rates and possessed other skills/experience that made them assets to the CG beyond what is normally expected of a non-rate.

    As far as "skills" that you think you will learn there. What do you think they are?

    There is a poster on this board who was recently assigned to the Eagle as a non-rate. Hopefully he will stop by and see this. I remember he said they asked for volunteers in boot camp who were a little older than the avg recruit, and who had no fear of heights.

    Just keep in mind the chances of there being a non-rate spot open there when you are graduating boot camp...

    I sailed on her a couple months ago for a week in BM "A" School. It was an awesome opportunity. Either way to answer your question: I came from a 378 ( Cutter Munro ) and, for the most part, the on-rates had the same qualifications as on other cutters; Helm/Lookout, security, etc. A few also had qualifications specifically for sailing. They taught the Cadets and OC's how to do these watches and stood the watches as well as mess cooked. Again, I only sailed on her for a week, but this is what I saw. Hope this helps. Oh...and they got to go to a bunch of bad ass places around the world. The Carribbean, South America, Europe....That cutter goes all around the world.

    Hello all, I am currently a non-rate stationed on Eagle.......fire away with the questions and I will do my best to answer them ........the info posted so far from replies is pretty accurate, you get a lot of great opportunities and a tremendous amount of responsibility as a non rate in this billet.

    I am curious, why are they looking for recruits who a little older than average? Is it a maturity issue because of the extra responsibility? I think working on the Eagle would be an incredible experience. Liongolfer, what do you think is most different about working on the Eagle as a non-rate versus another type of cutter, besides the sails? Thanks!
