I am prior army, infantry. I have been out for about a year, and am working on getting back in. I have already processed with MEPS, came out clean, and blew the ASVAB out of the water yet again. Once an updated conditional release comes back, the recruiter will send off to request a ship date, so I am very familiar with the upcoming process, job selection, etc. I guess my main question is, how do prior army, marine corps etc like the transfer? I worked with a lot of hard charging, competitive A type personalities and enjoyed that aspect. How does the USCG differ, and is it a positive change?
I've done about as much research as I can, and in large, it seems like most tend to enjoy the USCG much more, the rention rate alone says that. What say you? Are you happy with the change?
