Hi all wannabe Coastie here!
I'm considering joining the coast guard reserves and I'm Wondering what the difference is between the ME rating in Massachusetts reserve which is a port security unit and an ME rating in the Connecticut reserve ...what are the differences in their missions And general areas of operation. The recruiter told me the mass unit is the place to be at port security and there is a bonus. I'm not about the money , And the bonus has no bearing on my position, I was seeking this position before I knew anything about a bonus.
I just want to know what their responsibilities are in the Connecticut area because I am closer, He seemed to really Emphasize the PSU in mass and not really articulate the Connecticut unit at all? Are there ME rating reserve jobs in New York And if there is what would be the area of operation.
I would like to stay out of the Persian Gulf region I don't mind deploying to GITMO or conus disasters, I'd rather stay out of the middle east, I have family that deployed there and as a female, or Male for that matter its a place I'd rather not visit, the whole suicide bomber thing, Indigenous persons Committing acts of violence after being screened for entry, and jobs around US personnel. Possibilities Of abduction ect..
.Thx for any insite!
