    Hello, 
    I am wondering how hard it would be to get stationed at a small boat station fresh out of boot camp. Would putting down all the Small Boat stations possible in the greater NYC area be a long shot of getting? Is this a desirable location for recruits to put down on their dream sheet?

    You are filling out where you would like to be stationed. Then the USCG will determine where they need you the most and send you there. Keep this in mind, depending what rate you are interested in your first assignment out of boot camp will be from 9 months to two plus years depending on the A school you are interested in. If you are interested in a small boat station then put it down. My son wanted a small boat station in Florida and got a 210 foot cutter in Florida, after he graduated from A school he wanted something on the Gulf Coast, he's now in Washington State because there weren't any openings in the Area.

    If you from from the northeast I highly encourage to explore other regions. Let the gov't be your travel agent.

    If you're that hung up on staying in the area where you're from, then join the Reserves. Even if you're lucky enough to get something in the NYC area out of boot camp, you won't remain there your entire career.

    Agree.  We just returned from visiting Washington State.  I'm hoping he wants to go to Alaska next.
