    Hey Ben, I'm Jordan

    Well since a company graduates every friday, I found the latest company name to graduate and just went through the alphabet. I could be off by one or two though.

    Yes, graduate on 9/11 if everything goes well. I'm coming from Indiana, so not too far away.

    When I tried to figure out what company we'll be I came up with uniform 181 but I confused myself so your probably right. So what kinda things do you like to do? And What made you decide to go Coast Guard(other than it's the obvious choice lol)?

    I just figured out how it's done haha and I got Alpha 182 also. It just sorta clicked all of the sudden. That happens to me alot. I cant figure something out for a long time and then all of the sudden it comes to me. It was nice in math because it always seemed to come to me on the exams

    Did y'all skip "P"? You might be Bravo if you didn't! I think they normally reserve that for the pitstop class. If there isn't one, I don't know if they will use the letter for that incoming company?!

    Who cares what the letter... Be the best you can be and have a wonderful time!!!!

    No, OldGuard, I didn't know anything about P. No idea wat the pitstop class is. Thought I'd just have some love for oorah class Alpha 182! (it's from the Guardian :])

    Well Ben I've always had an interest in law enforcement, and I like helping people. My life has been the same thing everyday, very boring, so I wanted variety in my work. There are are many other reasons of course, but those were just off the top of my head.

    What about you?

    I'm happiest when I'm in or around water so I figured there wasn't a better option for me. I also was in college for 2 in a half years and sitting at a desk just doesn't interest me. I've been lifeguarding for 6 years and on a swim team since I was 5 so it kind've just made more sense for me to choose coast guard over anything else. I'd love to be an AST but I'm unsure of my vision so I dont know if I'd qualify with it but I'm also interested in BM, DC, or even the new ME rate coming out. I'm just pumped man. I've never been this excited or motivated towards something before.

    Jordan,

    The Pitstop class is people that don't do a full boot camp, lateralling over from another service. They only go for 4 weeks I believe. :) "P" is generally reserved for them and not the ool! LOL

    Oh, ok, I got it now! Thanks OldGuard!

    Yeah Ben, I'm just graduating High School this year, and was set on going to college. Then one day I realized, just as you did, I did not want to spend any more time in a classroom. I love the water as well, not that great a swimmer, but I do enjoy it. I'm so excited to leave, man...I'm going for the ME rating...that's what i was originally going to go to school for, law enforcement. Just under three months till we leave!!

    If I did my math correct its 80 days til we leave. I'm working two jobs right now and basically the only thing that kept me from quiting one of them today is the fact that in not to much longer I'm going to be doing exactly what I want to do. oh and I work at walmart and at the YMCA as a lifeguard. Walmart was the one I almost quit because I have a 13.5 hour day today between the two jobs and my boss is being a real pain about giving me a couple of days off to go up to wisconsin. It's the first time I've asked off since I started four months ago and I've gotten excellent reviews so I dont know what his problem is. Sorry just frustrated so I ramble

    I'm personaly not a fan of unions because my father's previous job had union people on the board but the credit union wasn't actually unionized and they made his life unbearable. That's how I ended up moving down to tennessee. My parents moved down here for my dad's new job so when i dropped out and decided to go military it just made more finicail sense to live with them for the couple months in between.

    I should also add I used to work at a General motors plant and I was making 20.20 an hour as a summer stand in and that was because of the union. So I've seen both sides of it and dont get me wrong it works in some circumstances but in others it isn't always the best thing.

    Well I only made that comment because I'm not a fan of Walmart lol
    However, they do have low prices...
    Anyway, I'm glad you chose the CG. It was probably the best decision I've made my whole life (so far).

    I'm with you on not being a fan of Walmart. I absolutely hate it but it was the only place hiring for awhile and in todays economy you take what you can get plus I wanted the discount so I could get a wii cheaper lol. We do have low prices though, thats definately true.

    I worked for walmart, it was a 2nd job for me when my husband & I first split up. They were fantastic with me including let me off the whole Thanksgiving weekend to spend it with Colin (he was only 7 at the time). It was very well known "Don't work Black Friday, don't work here" and I never worked a Black Friday & I was there for 2 years. Some people may have problems with Walmart but I will never bad mouth them and I would go back there tomorrow if the situation presented itself and I needed a 2nd job again. I also worked one weekend, off the following weekend, visitation was always a priority over a job. They never once complained to me or held it against me.

    Well I'm glad you had a good time with them. I hear it from both sides all the time. Some love it..others hate it. It would make more sense for me to take a job there and have the experience first before I start forming my own opinion.

    It sounds like you had a much better experience than I have so far. I've got about 4 months and the one I'm at in and they're not very accomadating with me but at the same time I worked at another one up in wisconsin a year or so ago and I was there for a year and they were very good. My boss was a little crazy because he was always trying to quit smoking so he'd get angry about the little things but overall it was a good place to work. So I really think it all depends on the walmart and how well your personality mixes with your boss.

    Well July will probably be extremely hot but august is when fall starts so it should start cooling down around then(hopefully). Cape May is right on the ocean though so theres going to be the nice sea breaze hopefully. Living in Tennessee until then should help me cope with that kind of heat but I'm one of those people thats always hot so we'll see.

    I am from NJ... even down the shore in October it can reach 90. Don't bet on August being fall and it getting cool. That just isn't going to happen. That's why summer rentals are still just as packed in August, it is still very much summer and hot in Jersey!
