Just wondering if anyone knew...
When is the Coast Guard is going to start accepting applications for the Maritime Enforcement Specialist Rating from people who aren't currently in the Coast Guard? January 2010, or later than that?
I'm thinking about going in as either a Gunner's Mate or a Maritime Enforcement Specialist, but if they're going to start accepting ME applications soon, than I want to wait cause I'm more interested in that as I'd like to work in Law Enforcement after I'm discharged.
EDIT: Oh, forgot to say, the reason I'm not asking a recruiter this is cause the nearest one is two hours away and my Dad (who served in the Navy back in the early 80s) told me not to go to the recruiter until I knew exactly what I wanted. He got BS'd by one.
