    I am not in the USCG, but trying to find some answers for my husband, who is. He did five years in the Navy, left at the end of his enlistment with an Honorable Discharge, then a year later joined the Coast Guard. He has completed his EPME and his flight physical, and is dying to get on the list for AMT A-School. However, he completed his flight physical in January, and his Chief jist now brought to his attention that he never got the paperwork or whatever he was supposed to get. They said the flight physicals are usually posted within 48 hours, and obviously my husband has been waiting much longer. His Chief told him that the doctor confirmed the physical was done and passed, but his paperwork must have been lost. I don't know if anyone else has been through or heard of this, but it's very aggravating that his Chief is doing as little as possible to get to the bottom of this, when his personal information has clearly been compromised, and he needs to get his rate so he can advance, rather than sitting here idly. Anything he can do to expedite the process? Any info would be super helpful at this point!

    This happens and its always is a huge pain. I was in a similar spot as your husband and when I completed my first flight physical they never took a EKG, finally after 2 months of the hold still next to my name I tried to ask my Chief and got the run around and was told to wait and see, got over that real quick and called the Clinic. They said I was missing my EKG and told them I never got one. They wanted to schedule me 2 weeks away but my cutter was getting underway in a week and delayed me another 3 months. All in all I was delayed almost 6 months and within 2 weeks of getting back and finishing my flight physical I had orders. I didnt follow the old "chain of command" but I found myself not getting the right help and called and spoke directly to the HS in charge of flight physicals. Hope the story helps and wasnt to boring...

    He needs to find out what side lost it, was it the clinic or his unit. I say start making phone calls.

    Thanks, Lance! Yeah we had kind of heard from multiple sources to go above the chain of command in order to find answers, but being at the very small station he's at, it was hard to trust that without being directly reprimanded or at least addressed in a negative way. But after enough input had suggested finding out for himself, he was able to get in touch with both hospitals involved and find out where the hold up was, huge relief! Now hoping he can get pinned as an E-4 AMT without going through A-School for being prior Navy AM, but we'll see haha. Endless battles!
