    Hello! My name is Kiersten. I'm from Virginia. I've wanted to enlist in the Coast Guard for years and I finally got the courage to do it. I sent in an application a few days ago. I'm a bit of a worrier so I'm a bit concerned about getting through Meps and taking the ASVAB. I took the ASVAB in high school and it wasn't too bad. I think I'll do better this time around though. I'm also a former Sea Scout. I hope that will give me some brownie points. The Portsmouth CG base lets us Sea Scouts spend a weekend on base every year and they personally train us in seamanship. That's how I decided I wanted to be in the Coast Guard. The Petty Officers I met as a teen really impacted me and I really looked up to them. A lot of my customers at my current job (at a donut shop) are Coasties, since I live near the base and they are so nice and always giving me advice and encouraging words. I look forward to getting the ball rolling and hopefully becoming a Coastie myself!

    Best of luck! I was a worrier before MEPS as well but if your anything like me once your through it you will wonder why you ever worried.

    I chuckled when you said a lot of the customers at the doughnut shop were coasties. It was also nice to read that you had a positive experience with the POs at Base Portsmouth. Active duty members really do a lot to help us recruiters get applicants. Anyways, good luck with the recruitment process.

    Thanks for the welcome! It's true though, some of my regular customers are Coasties. I also get a lot of the other branches coming in because I live in a big military area. I'm just a worry wart. I'm sure I'll do fine at Meps. I have no health issues, weight issues, or anything. I do have screws in my ankle but they don't do anything anymore. That surgery was 8 years ago and I could probably get them taken out if I wanted. I don't think they will an issue. I can get documentation if I need to.

    Thank you! I'm hoping Portsmouth is where I get stationed but I'll try anywhere. It might be good for me to get out and go somewhere new. I am going to put Portsmouth down on my dream sheet though if there is an option for specific bases.
