Excited, but nervous.

    Hello! 
    I am a new recruit for the U.S. Coast Guard and I am very much looking forward to this opportunity to serve.  I am currently 27 years old and after many years of not being ready due to personal family situations and my personal health and not being "ready" physically or mentally to join; I am finally at a stage in my life that I am ready, and if I don't do it now, I will not have the chance to do it and I don't want to regret not joining.  I will be shipping off to boot camp on October 27th with massive support from my husband of 6 years, and my 5 year old daughter.  We know it will be a big change and transition in our lives, but it will be a good one! 

    I have been looking forward to this for a long time and I'm proud of myself for making it this far and continuing my journey to serve in the coast guard!

    Welcome aboard! There are definitely some pros to being older and wiser. Bootcamp sucks, no getting around it. I got through It by remembering why I joined and who I would let down by quitting, and not thinking about the people and things I missed. Sounds backwards, but it is so mental and emotional it is easy to want to go back to those you love and a safe environment. It gets easier and you will get stronger mentally and physically!

    Start doing pushups, now, lots of pushups, push yourself physically to get ready, situps, squats, and above all, don't ever quit trying at anything. Recognize you're going to have to fight to do rescues, which are not easy, so get used to fighting and not quitting. They will teach you.

    Shut up, listen up, do what you're told fast and correct, and remember a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor. It's going to be rough on purpose, for a reason. You'll do fine. One day when you rescue someone you'll feel content and happy, and you'll understand, you will know.

    And, odd as it may seem, there's about thirty senior and retired Coasties who would swap spots with you in an instant, and do it all over again. Enjoy!
