    Does the CG offer a rank incentive for 4 vs 6 year enlistments?  Some branches offer E3 to candidates that agree to enlist for 6 years. Thoughts?

    There is no definite answer - it depends on your recruiting office and what the USCG is offering at the exact time you're ready to enlist. It's always changing.

    I was offered E3 for 6 years (I turned it down because I already get E3 for my college degree), but it was not an option when my husband enlisted.

    I'm not a pro though, so take my words with a grain of salt lol.

    Are you saying that each recruiting office has different incentives?

    I just signed my contract in January of this year. I was offered 6 years for E3. I took it because I plan to try and make a career of it.

    Some are also offered $2,000 Enlistment Bonuses(I was). But I don't think its contingent on 4 vs. 6 years. People in my company weren't offered it and signed up for the same length of time.

    Actually, I didn't even know I was getting a Bonus until I was signing the final paperwork DAYS before leaving for Boot Camp in late March.

    Hope this info helps.

    Each recruiting office has the ability to offer the same incentives. Do they offer them? Not always. Sometimes you have to ask. Why should I give you a dollar for free? Ask me I have a dollar and explain why you want it. Maybe then I will say, hey, I happen to have a dollar right here for you. There is none so blind as those who will not see. It doesn't hurt to ask your recruiter, are there bonuses, can I go straight to A School, can I choose my district? The worst a recruiter will tell you is, we have nothing available at this time.
