I am entering the USCG Reserve to do SAR but was offered a spot at a PSU. Recruiter says because they are shipping out this year before I finish boot, I would miss deployment and that it would be a good opportunity to learn from a PSU and get more time on a boat than at a station.
Is this valid/ worthwhile? My main interested is SAR, but the recruiter also said I would almost certainly need to do time at a PSU in the future.
Is it possible to transfer out of a PSU unit without deploying with them? I have nothing against deploying but if I'm going to do it, I would rather it be done in the context of SAR.
