    Hello everybody, I have been viewing these forums for a while now, and I have finally decided to make an account and join the community. (You guys are great, btw) 

    I have been going though the recruitment process for about 4 weeks, and I have just returned from Fort Hamilton MEPS after taking my ASVAB. I personally thought it wasn't too bad, I got a 90 for the AFQT and a 127 for my GT (I didn't even study). The Coastie working there said that was the second highest AFQT score he had ever seen. I have to call my recruiter tomorrow to set up the Physical.

    Driving home with my father I had the biggest smile on my face. Growing up around boats my whole life (I learned to swim before I could walk xD) I'm just so excited to do this, to join the CG, to always be prepared, to go out and do anything they need me to, save distressed mariners, tend to buoys, bust drug traffickers, stop illegal immigration, fight piracy, you name it, I'll do it. 

    Have a good one!

    I'm sure it will be! My dream assignment would be Alaska, that Bering Sea is no joke!

    My son had sailed around the Bering and it is either amazing or treacherous. He was born in Alaska and loves sailing all around there. Best of luck.

    Do dishes, paint, scrub bilges, clean... Don't forget about all of the mundane tasking you'll receive while you learn to do all of the above. Now that I think about it the CG has a whole Mr. Miyagi thing going on.

    I have been sailing in the Open Ocean before, but I'm sure it's nothing compared to the Bering Sea. I guess you could say I have my "Sea Legs".

    I love painting and cleaning! Hell, I love working in my boat's bilge too. I will probably experience many times of boredom like you said, but thats's all part of life I guess.
