    Here are the facts of my story: Mast was administered to a young 19 yrs old coastie, who have been 9 mts in this unit, no previous incidents, was only 19 days away from A school, good comments were given by supervisors during Mast, the coastie did not Admit of allegation at Mast, there were no witnesses, the accuser and the judge were both the Captain of the Cutter, Sector commanders have advised Captain not to proceed... Mast was administered without any previous Administrative procedures given first, this was the first alleged offense. Punishment: 14 days restriction & 14 days extra duty... the biggest punishment happened before the punishment was dictated the A school was canceled...and 6 months stock in this unit with this captain waiting to put name in A school list again. The Accusation: Coastie was on duty, captain saw coastie from behind seating in mess deck bench, coastie had a hoodie over his head cause it was cold, captain called coastie, costie didn't respond cause he didn't hear captain, captain turns around goes to room and writes accusation: Sleeping on duty... But never "woke" up coastie, nor went to get the other duty member to inform of what is happening...just saw, assumed and destroyed. In actuality left the vessel unmanned at this point since the duty guy is allegedly sleeping. But all this is water under the bridge...The damage was horribly done. My questions are about his future. This young coastie have great aspirations and dreams for a full service career in the CG. 1. Where is the NJP recorded or filed? 2. How long does the NJP stays in record? 3. Will he really be able to put name on A school list in 6 months with no issues? 4. Will he be able to get promotions and achieve his goals, like any other member or will this stain reduce his limits? 5. I see on line about summarize article 15 or company grade article 15? Does the CG have these too or just one kind of article 15? 6. I see on line that for grades E-4 and below article 15 is filed locally and will be destroyed 2 yrs after of upon ETS or PCS, whichever occurs first. Is this also truth in the CG? Thanks so much to those who kindly will read this post and provide some knowledgeable answers. Please no batching or criticism. Just good answers. Thanks a lot.

    Case in point... A Coastie I have intimate knowledge of. He was masted. He stole a float coat in a state of drunkenness. He was caught. He faced mast. He went to mast. Same thing, name removed from A School, restricted, loss of pay, blah, blah, blah, all the legal beagle stuff. That same Coastie just retired. 30 years active duty, achieved the rank of Captain and made some pretty amazing contributions to the Coast Guard.

    Mistake made, lesson learned, punishment served, move on.

    Thanks for that answer!... So far this coastie is showing remarkable resolve to move forward despite this unfortunate event, showing not one once of second thoughts, is just eager for the months to go by fast so he can get going again...We as parents are the ones worry that he might be putting a great deal of effort and passion and hope, but for this incident to follow him like be a boulder attached to his neck for ever. Thanks for telling us about your friend's case.

    I know this is null in point now, but the coastie shouldn't have been wearing a hood over his head or any cover if he was on the messdeck. It's a sign of disrespect on a ship or in any galley. It also sounds like there is more to the story than what was led on, but if that person thought he was sleeping, then he thought he was sleeping.

    From here on out, I'm not sure it'll come off his record, but in general stuff like this isnt an end all be all at all. He/she just needs to keep their nose clean and move on.

    Most of us have been in some sort of trouble, it just depends on what you make of it afterwards
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    I still have not gotten any response about how long does the NJP stays in the official records. I've researched a lot on line and I saw that for grades E-4 and below, Article 15 is filed locally and will be destroyed 2 yrs after or upon ETS or PCS, whichever occurs first. Is this the case in the Coast Guard too? And what does it means Filed Locally? Also he wasn't given any copies of the finalized papers after Mast was administered for his records. Should they have given him copies of the documents? Thanks.
