    Sectors/Stations 4 years, Most cutters 3 years, Patrol Boats 2 years, isolated duty 1 year. If you drink underage or pop positive for drugs your tour length will be drastically reduced.

    It depends on how long the wait is for "A" school.

    Gears is correct to an extent....i don't believe ALL 110's are 2 years, I believe its just the ones down here running dual crews in FL...i could be wrong though.  I know my freind went to a 110 in AK and he got a 3 year tour.

    Also, you're first unit out of a-school will be one year + time left between transfer seasons.  My tour length for Sector st pete is 2 years 9 months...

    The 4 months is the time you have be at your unit before you can put your name on an "A" school list.

    WPBs are CPBs are two year tours, you can request an extension, which your friend may have done. I can't say for sure.

    Unless you have to extend your enlistment in order to meet the obligated service time required for your rate after A school. Obligated service requirements are different for each rate upon graduation from A school. Your tour length will reflect 1: How much obligated service (if any) you had to agree to and 2: The tour length of the billet you will fill. Very rarely (and I mean VERY rarely) will any tour extend beyond 5 years.


    Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

    Well i have 4 years left on my contract and I only got a 2 year 9 month tour here?

    I didn't have to extend or re-enlist.

    That's probably because your billet there is for 3 years.

    Since you had 4 years left on your original enlistment you met the obligated service requirement for your rate. That is why you didn't have to extend (which is adding more time to your original enlistment contract). People who have LESS than the obligated service time left on their enlistment MUST obligate either by extension or reenlistment in order to be eligible to attend A school.

    I'll make this simple:

    SN Stains enlists in the CG for 4 years. He waits for a year to put his name on an A school list. Another year goes by and he finally gets orders to IT A school. The obligated service requirement for IT is 3 years.

    Since his enlistment was for 4 years (and he's already been in for 2) he has 2 years remaining on his contract. In order for him to go to IT A school he must extend for an additional year to meet the obligated service requirement. No extention=No school.
