    I wanted to know is anyone in the coast guard? and what should people who do wish to join the coast guards expect?

    i'm seriously thinking about joining the coast guards b/c i think that once i join i will then know what my career will be. i always hear people say that once they join the force they then know what they want to be later in life. Is that true?

    I've never been in the Coast Guard, but I know someone who transferred to the CG from the Army. Being an Army Brat, most people I've talked to have had no regrets with their experiences in the military, and it is no doubt a good foundation for anything later on in life.

    But, if that's the only reason you would like to join the military, then don't. First and foremost, the military is about national service, and defense of the country. Period. If you're ok with that, then go for it! If not, consider other things instead.
