    Im single and haven't lived with my parents for a long time. Leaving my stuff with them is not an option. When I go to Basic, is it better that I leave my stuff with someone at a house for the military to pack up and take or in a storage unit, already packed up? Also, since there is a good chance that I will be stationed on a cutter and hence, no place for my household goods, what do people do with their stuff if they are older and have accumulated things that can't be left with parents anymore? Will the military move my stuff from a storage unit in my hometown to a storage unit near my first duty station? Or, will they move my stuff from a storage unit in my hometown and drop it off at some company headquarters at my first duty station so that I can then find and transport it to a nearby storage unit. And the stuff I am talking about is stuff that I might want access to depending on the circumstances of my first duty station: new bed, desk and chair, clothes, books, musical instruments, computer, files, keepsakes... What are the older single people that are stationed and live in barracks on the cutter doing with their stuff? I know when single people get deployed with the Army, their stuff is packed up and stored by the military - but that's for a deployment not a regular duty station. This idea of living on a boat is really new to me and I am just wondering what people do with their stuff. Thanks

    I'm just curious. You sound like you're older than the typical applicant. How old are you?

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the age cutoff for the Coast Guard is you can't have reached your 28th birthday (For active duty). If you are interested in the reserves, you still have time.

    Well, you never mentioned anything about being prior service. I just assumed that you posted your question in the wrong area. How many years of prior service do you have? What was your pay grade and job when you got out? What was your RE code on your DD214? Your chances of coming in above E-3 are pretty much slim to none. If your RE code is anything other than an RE-1, we couldn't process you. All of the information would help me paint a more realistic picture for you.

    I think my questions have already been asked before. I didn't realize there were so many pages of questions and answers. I've got some reading to do!
