Things seem not so kind for the Ringmaster, but the time is nigh to vote. Either voice your support or vote the thread locked.

hey

I'm an operations specialist 1st class petty officer. (E-6)

I've been in the Coast Guard for just shy of 6 years. I joined from my hometown of Las Vegas (although besides family living there, it doesn't have that home feeling anymore), I spent some time on a cutter and patrolled the cold waters of Alaska, but was stationed in Alameda, CA. I spent 4 years in Miami and just over a year ago moved to Astoria, OR.

The accident on the Klickitat River someone asked about... while I was on watch during part of the effort (specifically the part where we found two rafting groups), we were not the lead search agency. When Search and Rescue (SAR) is inland, the Air Force has authority, but since Dept of Defense doesn't have any dedicated SAR assets, and the local authorities usually call the shots, we get called in fairly regularly for cases such as the one that happened out there.

When we got the call, one person was already deceased, and it wasn't until the day after that the second body was located, probably killed within the same timeframe as the first person, just caught in a log jam.

I don't know about the differences between +P 9mm fragmentable ammunition and standard .40 JHP, but I assume you're familiar with the fact that the Coast Guard has switched from the 9mm to the 40 cal or you wouldn't be asking?

Yes I know there is Coast Guard in Ohio (Sector Ohio Valley I believe.. not positive) There is also Coast Guard in several other places most people wouldn't traditionally think of, based on large volumes of people in the area, or shipping lanes, such as along the Mississippi in Memphis, and Keokuk, Iowa (relocating to St Louis next month)

I don't know if I caught everyone's questions, but there is the recap. And Detroit - the techno capital - is also home to a Coast Guard base.

Anything else?

One joins the Coast Guard just like anyone would join the Army or other service. You talk with a recruiter, sign on the dotted line, and get whisked away to boot camp.

Many people ask me how I joined from a land locked state with no Coast Guard presence other than a couple lucky bastards in Lake Tahoe, and to that I say - I wanted to get into Search and Rescue. I would have preferred out in the Colorado Rockies or somewhere like that, but I talked with several groups in the area who said SAR wasn't common enough to have full time positions, and I didn't want to have to be a cop or firefighter to volunteer when the few cases did present themselves.

(sorry I forgot that questions)

He's euthastic about the people he represents. Cut him some slack.

What is your job in the coast guard? Do you get to shoot drug smugglers or rescue jet skiers?

No more drug runners in Oregon (well, I'm sure there are in some capacity, but not that we are working against)

Miami had a bunch of drugs and migrants and rescues. Here is a picture of an extremely small bust we had (62 kilos.. bout $1.2 million). The picture isn't me, lol, it's one of the guys I used to work with, looking like a tool I might add

This one is of CSI dusting the packages for any prints that could lead to other known smugglers

How does someone become involved in the Coast Guard exactly? And how on earth can you stand to live in the dreary PacNW after living in warm sunny FL?


Trust me.. it's been a hell of an adjustment. The scenery is beautiful the 2½ months out of the year it decides to not rain and that somewhat helps. But the nightlife, women, warm water, and cool drinks are definitely missed. I still head back every March for Winter Music Conference, so I get my dose of sun and sand.

You can have fires on the beach here though, which you couldn't in Florida.. hey.. ya gotta stay positive :)
