I've been thinking about enlisting after I finish up at my 2 year school. My Dad was in the Coast Guard and I am going to ask him about it, but I wanted to hear other opinions.
Should I attempt to enlist with the Coast Guard?

do what you gotta do1
Yeah, do what you love1
That's totally up to you. I admire your desire to serve your country, but just keep in mind that while the benefits are great, so are the downfalls. It's a HUGE commitment, and once you sign that contract you become government property until it's up.
Think long and hard if you're ready for that.1

''I've been thinking about it the past couple of days''.
Dude, I'd put a bit more thought into it then a couple of days? There is a good chance you might not enjoy it. So, Just think about it some more yeah?
Like, I've been thinking for a year or so now about Joining the Army, And, Even im still not sure, But, I think im leaning much more towards yes now. But yeah dude, Joining a Military branch is a Big Descision, Dont jump into it ;)1
Why not - Honourable profession1
That will be a very valuable experience in your life. By the way, why not the Navy?1
The Coast Guard is small and I beleive it was hard to get into in the past. heck the requirements. military can really change you for the good but think about college too. I did both as I served with the National Guard. Maybe join a reserve unit but you could be deployed. My nephew just got out of Airborne. it made a real man out of him.0
Don't let anyone tell you what you should do. This is a big decision so make sure you are 100% about it before enlisting. It is a good cares though.2
