    Hello guys, I am married and a green card holder.I want to join the coast guard reserve but want to find out if the coast guard helps green card holders attain their citizenship like the other branches of the military?

    Also,what is the minimum number of years I can sign on to the coast guard?

    Lastly, It is possible you will not be deployed to a war zone?

    I have had an age waiver into to Coast guard Recruiting Command for 2 to 3 weeks now to get back into the reserves. My recruiter and my self have not heard from the command to see if they have even received the waiver in an email. It's the only item, I am told by my recruiter holding me up from getting back to my PSU unit, how long does it take to receive these emails back and signed by coast guard command?

    Thank you,
    James Aaron Miller

    Yes it is possible you won't be deployed to a war zone but it is also possible you will. You serve to the needs of the service and the Coast Guard is a branch of the Military. Pretty simple, my opinion is if your worried about being deployed maybe this is not for you.

    The chances of a Reservist being deployed to a combat zone are pretty slim, unless they're assigned to a Port Security Unit. Even that is fairly unlikely anymore, given the PSU's mission in the mid East is non existent.  Could that change with world events? Sure. I will say a Reservist at a small boat station or Sector isn't going to be deployed to any hostile fire zones.  

    Overall, Reservists are being activated/deployed less and less these days, due to the budget.  There has to be a real defined need to justify the expense.  I say this with 16 years CGR experience behind me and can recall a time when active duty orders were there pretty much for the asking.

    A PSU, I'm sorry I can't remember which one, was just deployed for 9 months. So it is happening currently. I don't see where it will completely stop. But there is no way of saying yes this one will, no that one won't.

    There are PSU's still deploying to Guantanamo Bay, but that's not a combat zone. It's strictly for security of Naval assets. Talking to folks that have been there, it's a pretty laid back deployment

    It depends whether or not you qualify for DEPOT (3 week boot camp).  DEPOT is for those coming into the CGR on the basis of their civilian job skills or educational level.
