    Hey guys,

    I am about to apply for SRDC and maybe OCS, depending on what openings are available.

    I'm having a hard time convincing anybody that I am actually serious about doing it. Since I live inland they just kind of laugh it off...but I guess that comes with the territory when people don't really understand what the USCG is all about.

    Good luck everyone!

    Rock, good luck! It's a battle to convince others. But you don't need to convince others. If you've convinced yourself, you've done it! Let us know how it goes. My OCS packet wasn't submitted this go around, but will be in February. Hopefully, it's a battle we can endure together. And I've heard much of the same .... hailing from the boring state of Indiana doesn't leave much room for anything Coast Guard related unless it's along the Wabash! If you desire to gain some CG knowledge, there's a few good books out there (Rescue Warriors - overview of everything CG, Character in Action - CG on Leadership)... a good board (coastguardocs.org)... and the CG publication which is a pretty simple read (http://www.uscg.mil/top/about/pub1.asp). Best of luck in your endeavors!

    my daughter hasn't applied for ocs, but she did come from a land locked state. everyone here enlists in the national guard or the marines. most people in her home town and high school didn't even know the coast guard was a branch of the military. if the uscg can offer you what you want, go for it. don't let others lack of knowledge discourage you. hang in there~fabulous support system on this forum.

    and welcome!
