    Hi everyone.  I am a mom who is new to the USCG.  My son will be graduating from high school in a few weeks and after a lot of deliberation has decided to join the Coast Guard.  This is not our first time on this roller coaster ride.  Our oldest son is a USMC Veteran - been there, done that, have a few shirts and gray hairs to prove it   

    Anyway - just wanted to "introduce" myself and say hi!

    Welcome to the forum. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. There are a lot of differences when it comes to the USCG and USMC.

    We are definitely realizing the differences between the two branches. I feel like we are coming into this adventure a little bit behind the curve. Our oldest son did delayed enlistment so by the time he actually left for Boot we were fairly well versed in the ways of the Corps and prepared (as prepared as one can be to send their child off to Boot Camp) for what to expect. At this point I am grateful for any information I can get!

    My HS Grad is at Boot Camp as I type this... W-194. I highly recommend reading the Boot Camp blogs done by the recruits. I have been for several months now and found that I knew more about the process than he did (lol). Got a short note the other day from him saying "why did we let him do this"! All kidding aside and knowing how different I parent from my own parents (who cared less when I shipped out to Army basic in August 1983) I made sure I went to his Recruiter with him as well as my wife a few times to ask those "parent questions" and again I did as much research as I could so I was prepared. We are just going into Week 3 so his life right now is more or less miserable... in a fun Coast Guard way.

    I wish your son all of the success and you the knowledge knowing he is going into (in my opinion) the best Branch we have to offer... Sincerely from Colorado :-)
