Hey folks, thanks for allowing me to join the group. I'm currently active duty Coast Guard at a Search and Rescue station, with less than a year left on my enlistment. I've really wanted to get into field medicine after I attended a TCCC course prior to an OIF deployment, and I found it ain't gonna happen in the CG. I'm currently in an NREMT-B course, and concurrently taking some college courses. My ulitimate goal is to lateral to the AF and give PJ a shot, so I've been doing everything I can to streamline the process and make myself as marketable as possible (prior service slots are slim and seemingly competitive right now, so I'm hoping every little bit helps). My father is kinda my driving force in my choice, he was an Army SF Medic in Vietnam, so he's a big motivation to get my shit together. Thanks again for all the info you guys have put out there, this website's been a big help.
