4.4The Coast Guard is similar to other militaries using the same sets of rules as well as the same pay scale. There is an end point to everyone's employment, however, and I'm retiring after 24 years of service. The skills I have gained in the medical administration realm have been invaluable. Furthermore, the masters degrees I've earned has prepared me well to exit the service.
4As an Active duty Member of the U.S. Coast Guard it was a high paced environment that I felt a part of the majority I was employed. However, for the family it was not a good environment to stay married or raise a family with a family that had special needs. If you are single and looking for a challenge then this is a great place to work.
