Default Any Military Recruiters here?

Like it says. I have some general questions for a friend of mine, and the limited number of recruiters in MO seem hell bent on being useless.

Doesnt really matter what branch, but if we have a Coast Guard recruiter on here even better.

What does he want to do in the Coast Guard? If he wants most of the same benefits and a lot better pay, have him check out Military Sealift Command. He'll still be a civilian with a Fed job, but much better living conditions, pay rates, benefits, etc.

PM Me for more details

Side question for anyone considering the Coast Guard:

The Coast Guard is under the Department of Homeland Security, therefore there are some benefits military personnel qualify for that Coast Guard cannot. Are any of these significant to consider before entering the Coast Guard?

The one I recently discovered was Coast Guard cannot use some spousal benefits for education. Not sure if there are other programs they wouldn't be eligible for.

Food for thought.

I know that the Coast Guard allows you to transfer you GI bill to your spouse or children as long as you obligate, or have served at least 10 years. I also know that I received family separation pay on my deployments that we're over 30 days. You will still receive hazard pay in certain areas over seas.

The spousal benefits I found didn't work for Coast Guard are the MyCAA benefits. It is like tuition assistance for spouses and it doesn't tap into your GI Bill.

That's probably true, I haven't heard of that program. Sound pretty good though. I do know that in the CG you can live off base as an E3 and receive basic allowance for housing, where as in the army and marine corps you couldn't live off base unless you were married or made a certain rank. As an E4 I was pulling in around $1500 every 2 weeks, and that was my regular check. I made even more on my deployments getting a daily allowance. I did a mission in Hawaii for 3 weeks and got $120 a day.

I'm currently 2 years into my 6 year enlistment with the Navy. I may be able to answer some questions.
