    So I've been at my unit for over a year now and I was finally in the steps of getting my name onto an A school list. Some new chiefs came in and have been helping me along with the process and while I found out that my security clearance investigation (which i started with my recruiter) had never gone forward past boot camp I was at least happy that it was moving along. I've also been dating a foreign national who is currently studying here in the U.S. She's from Taiwan and I'm aware of the difficulties of having a relationship with a foreigner. I knew the risks but I assumed that since the United States and Taiwan are allies that it would just delay it at most. Sadly, I was informed two days ago as of writing this that because of my relationship with her I can currently not put my name on the A school list. They classified her country as a "high threat country" and called it an unmitigatible risk. I told my command and they are looking into see if there's anything that can be done, but so far it seems like my only options are to break up with her or choose a different school to go to. The only other school that seriously interests me is IT, but that's not what I went to college to study for. I won't mention the A school but I'm sure anyone familiar with this can probably guess. I talked to my parents and my Dad, who is former Army and really plugged in with the kind of work I want to do, just advised me to wait and see which is what I'm doing.

    To put this in perspective we just had our 1-year anniversary as a couple and Christmas is right around the corner. She's going to go see her family for winter break and I'm going to be mostly underway for the next several months so we're going to not be seeing each other for a while and I don't want this hanging over us. She's already met my entire family and everyone loves her and she's one of the kindest people i know. She puts up with all my shit and I can't imagine that girls like this are very common. I've already told her and she's obviously freaking out.

    My question is is there any other option I can take aside from breaking up with her to still get to where I want to go? I mean, I gave them all the information I could on her and they only had about 4-5 days to look into it max assuming they looked at her immediately. Is there any chance they didnt examine her thoroughly? I was already interviewed by an investigator for my security clearance back in May so I don't know if that does anything. Apparently this is only for the A school I want to go to and doesn't have anything to do with my security clearance investigation, which I need. So please, is there anything I can do to salvage this? I'm already considering ending our relationship once I find out all the information I can and I feel like a piece of shit for thinking it.

     Apparently this is only for the A school I want to go to and doesn't have anything to do with my security clearance investigation, which I need.   This has everything to do with your security clearance.  I'm assuming you're looking to go to IS A School.  If that's the case, then a TS clearance is required for the school.  Contact with foreign nationals from certain countries is a huge red flag when it comes to security clearances.  Don't be surprised if you're contacted by CG Counter Intel. 

    I'm not sure that ending your relationship will solve the problem.  It may be such that you cannot now  be granted a TS clearance.  Like your Dad said, wait and see.

    Thats a bit of an odd statement about life and your career. If she is the one for you, it's weird to look at it as screwing your career. This is the way life goes. If you view her as screwing your career, then there is no way this relationship can be fully successful. Being a Coast Guard family is a team effort all of the way. Its all about give and take and its a fine balance. If my son is sick and we can't physically be located somewhere because he needs attention from a specialist, I don't look at him as ruining my career because I may not get experience somewhere. Like Chief said, just wait and see.

    I don’t see her as a path to screwing up my career. She’s a wonderful woman and I love her. It’s just the possibility of us dating, even if we broke up, permanently keeping from a TSC is scary. If there’s a way for us to stay together I’ll take it and I’ll make sure that I’ve exhausted every option I have before I actually consider breaking up with her. Thank you both for the comments though. I haven’t heard anything back yet so any reassurance is helpful.
