From San Diego, CA — 10/23/2008

I have been in the Coast Guard for 6 1/2 years now, and recently re-enlisted for another 6. The job security is great, the pay is decent, and the benefits are wonderful. Location depends on where you want to get stationed, and where they send you. You've got to understand it's based on the needs of the service. Career potential/growth all depends on your motivation and your personal drive to advance. Unlike the other services, you have the potential to advance quicker and retire higher than an E-6. Work/life balance is because there're times where you have to put in a ridiculous amount of overtime.
