I am new to the Forum, I’m sorry for any duplications but I had a few questions. I’m 32 years old, live in Columbus, GA and have been with DHS as a law enforcement officer for the past 5 years. I am interested in the ME rate as I feel it relates directly to my civilian career. Given my current location I understand I will be traveling a considerable distance to drill. My questions are; if my civilian job (DHS) moves me to another state, can I transfer to a closer unit? Does it depend on current billets? I graduated FLETC UPTP in 2014, would I be exempt from “A” school for ME rate? Is the IV rate something I could apply for? I’m currently an 1801 with a DHS agency, not an 1811, not sure if I would be a contender. I have a BA and completing my Masters and hold a TS Clearance for what it’s worth. I know I’m late to the game but I have a strong desire to serve and feel the USCGR would be an excellent fit.
