    Not to get ahead of myself or anything, but I've had a difficult time getting a hold of my recruiter lately and can't seem to find an answer. How does the process work for getting home after graduation? I understand it will be on my dime, but will I be given an opportunity to make arrangements or must I wait till the day of graduation? Also, whats the deal with getting to my first station? (I really wish my recruiter would be easier to reach, I feel like a bit of a nuisance.)

    You will be given an opportunity during boot camp to make travel arrangements home. If you have family traveling to Cape May you can tell them your plans, they can tell you theirs or they can make your travel arrangements home with them. I know it all seems like a bit much but they do go over all of this while you are in Cape May. I have heard most recruits are able to call home when making travel plans. Colin didn't call because we were staying in Jersey and I was driving him to Boston. So he had no travel plans to make.

    You aren't a nuisance... we've all said it countless times, recruiters are still just as swamped as ever. He will give you a call when he can. Keep a running list of things to ask and when he does call you, you will be prepared. In the meantime, you know you are never a nuisance here... bug us with some questions too.

    The Coast Guard will pay for you to get to your duty station, rather your flying or driving. Like old guard said, at boot camp they will make all the travel arrangements with you.

    They will pay for you to get from Cape May to your duty station! "Home" for Colin was Ft Worth, Texas at the time of graduation. The CG would not have paid for him to go back to Ft Worth from Cape May and then on to Boston. You don't go to Boston via Texas when you are leaving from New Jersey. Now, if he had been stationed in San Diego, sure, Texas could have been considered a stop along the way and that would have been paid for. We have a recruit on here right now that is going to be stationed in Cape May. If he wants to go to NYC to see a Broadway show it will cost him to get there, the CG will not pay for any of it. So they won't necessarily pay for you to get home... it's tricky. They'll explain in painful detail for you!
