Raquel here. I started the application process to join the USCG not too long ago (approximately a month ago) and I'm headed to MEPS soon. I have yet to decide if I will be going Reserves or AD, that is if I do not get selected for SLRP. I do have a few concerns.
I have a dog and if I were to go AD how difficult or easy is it for Coasties to bring their dogs to each station? And if I were not to go AD but Reserves first -- is it difficult to switch over to AD after a while in?
