My guess is it would reset so you get a handful of oer's that are coast guard specific before you get looked at for O-4. I'm just an army warrant currently, but a good friend of mine transferred from the guard to active duty last year and he was already selected for O-4 in the guard but they reset his TIG as an O-3 once he went active. He has to wait that 5 yrs again before he gets looked at for MAJ, just my 2 cents.

Nothing - I’m low on the alternate list for DCIO - so I’m not holding my breath. 

Already prepping a package for the September Board - but my current CC is making things difficult..........

SMH - as much as I’m not holding my breath - I REALLY hope I get the call :-/

For DCA applicants, what happens if you get selected as an alternate? I assume primary means you got the slot, but alternate? Does that mean they will pick you if one of the other primary slots pull out?

I have some questions about transitioning from active duty army to coast guard (primary select here) and was hoping someone can message me directly to clarify a few things. Jut wondering the best way to handle terminal leave, should I cash it out or take it? And once we commission in th CG do we start getting paid right away or not until we report to our first duty station?

I'm active army as well and I'll be transferring my leave over. It just needs to be annotated on your dd214 or have your final LES with your leave balance.

No assignment officer yet but I did just get an email confirming class date and commission date.

take your leave.. I took 31 days with me.. it comes in handy when the holidays roll around and you look at your balance and have 2 days in there instead of 40.. I would take the leave forsure...

I just finished DCO.. course was okay.. nothing too stressful..COVID made it less fun than it should of been. we got liberty the LAST weekend with 2130 curfew and New London city limit boundary.. Munroe Hall is clean..small room.. good room service.. you will pay 970 bucks unless you have Government Travel Card activated.. you will also pay about 200-300 in uniform/tailoring charges.. another 400 for all hands and lunches at the O-club.. so have your finances in order before u arrive. 

Philosophy Panels at  the end were cool dont stress it. 
prior service members will be quite bored.. but its only 5 weeks.. lol..

When you say we'll pay 970 for a room unless we have a government travel card, what do you mean?

Should I keep my current GTC active when I transfer over? It was a pain getting it in the first place and I don't want to go through that again.

That may not be an option.  Typically you're required to surrender the card when you separate from service. Also, there's the possibility that the bank that DoD uses to issue it's cards may not be the same one DHS uses.

How does PCSing/household goods and acquiring my new ID card work for people transitioning from a different service?

I assume once we receive orders we can start working that issue. I'm hoping that I don't have to wait until I have my DD214 in hand IOT pick up my new ID card and initiate/request household goods movement through the website (can't remember the url) and then set up the appointment at my local transportation office.

we did PT for the first 2 weeks together at 0500 on the field.. then after that it was whenever you can fit it around OCS and their schedule.. Covid restrictions have the gym hours very limited. so ppl just pretty much ran around base...base liberty most likely won't be granted until late in the course and after the multiple covid test results are back

I didnt come from the CG therefore my GTC from my prior branch was inactive.. Noone in our class had an active GTC so we all had to pay out of pocket for everything at the academy. uniforms room meals etc. 

If u are prior CG talk with ur unit and see if your GTC can stay active. Im not sure how that would work.  I am pretty sure when you move units you are required to get a new GTC account... So just be prepared to spend about 2K during the course

your assumptions are pretty accurate.  It actually works just as you explained it.  you can't get another ID card until you commission. Once you have that you can work the rest. your new unit will assist you with the HHG info. once you get an assignment your YN will reach out and get HHG started for you.

Did you have any pay issues after crossing over? That's my biggest concern.

So I'll be the guy to ask again, I know primaries got some notifications, any alternates know they were selected yet? feel like they might drop it on us a month before the class but its all rumors so idn if it happened already for some or not.
