    Good evening,

    I am excited at the prospect of potentially joining the Coast Guard. I worked and interacted with some excellent men and women at the joint bases I was assigned while I was active duty and I am excited to potentially join. I have finished my degree since separating from the Air Force and have now started the first steps.

    I recently contacted my recruiter and filled out some paperwork/provided information he requested. He stated that I would need to be released from the Air Force's IRR via a DD Form 368 before we could continue further. He was uncertain whom to actually route the form through and told me he would look into it and asked me to also do the same, so I thought I'd try here as well as reaching out to my prior units. I do not have a command structure or contact number since being moved to the IRR as far as I am aware. Does anybody know who exactly we would need to contact?

    Thank you,

    J. Mars

    I'm prior AF in the CG now. Just talk to an AF recruiter, they're used to prior service people. CG recruiters are very lazy, so don't be surprised if they're never around and you need to nag them to get them to do anything, that's just the way they are. Just keep in mind that you're going to start off as an E-3 again, and everything in the CG is totally different...

    Lazy huh? Have you worked at a recruiters office and know first hand what they are doing? Doubt it. Did you think at all that maybe your comment is inappropriate to say on an online forum, regardless of what your opinion is?
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    Really?? And you've served as a recruiter, so you you'd know what they have to deal with.  Here's an interesting bit of info: In the entire state of CA there are only six RO's.  Now how busy do you think that makes them?

    ...and the population of California is 37,000,000. You do the math. Lazy is not the proper terminology, OVERLOADED is the actual word.

    Wow, Sminthian, that's a pretty bold statement. Recruiters for the CG typically cover multiple states and thousands of square miles. You may have noticed, we are slightly smaller than the Air Force and have smaller recruiting numbers. So it is thought that we don't need as many recruiters working the job. Probably true but I'm so sorry they weren't there to powder your bottom at the drop of a hat. They had a bunch of other whiners complaining they are lazy at the same time. You should just be glad you made that statement after you got into the CG.... I would love to call your recruiter and tell you what you thought of him/her.
