    What is the minimum a Prior Service applicant would need to enlist in the CG? As far as RE Code and Discharge? Any waivers available? Would have Moral and Character references from professional individuals and professional employers help? I've been out about 3 years. I have not applied for a discharge upgrade yet. I would rather not go into the whole story. I made some poor choices and my command handled the situation poorly. The whole situation was unprofessional. It was not for Drugs,Alcohol or anything illegal. It was literally a lack of communucation issue along with some command issues. I was given the wrong discharge. I know correcting the discharge could take years. Thank you.

    RE-1, that's it. Anything else will not get you in the door. Since it sounds like you have something other than that, any other answers are moot.

    Not knowing where you live, no one can suggest a lawyer. Also, I don't believe you need a lawyer. I think there is a way to get that changed, if it can be, without going through an attorney.

    Some RE-3 waivers exist on a case-by-case basis, but you will need to prove to the recruiter and our command that the deficiency has been corrected and meet the rest of the whole person concept before much could be done.

    If ever there was a time to try and join, it is now.  The CG went from 1,500 enlisted active duty hires in 2012 to 3,250 this year.  That number is going up by a couple hundred next year.  See if a recruiter near you will at least do a prescreen with you to start evaluating your whole person.

    What does the CG consider prior service? Other services have defined the term but I can't find any information about the Coast Guard's definition. Direction from recruiters would be helpful. Thanks.

    According to our recruiting SOP, enlisted prior service is defined as at least completing a service's basic training, failing basic training and issued a DD-214 with an RE code or completing your MSO.
