I was a Coastie back in the 80's.Now I work on machiney(MK) but make 10 times the money.
I spent 3 years,8 months and 17 days aboard the Vigorous back when she was stationed in New London at the academy.Did some time in Yorktown VA also,then a year on a small boat station and back to civilian life with the corresponding pay increase. :yes:
Glad I did it when I did,had some serious fun and did some serious work too.
I sometimes wonder how much things have changed or have they changed at all?
My lab is still the best hunting partner there is.

Well glad to here that as an MK I can get out and make some money.

I would say it has changed a lot sense the 80s. I have been almost 9.5 and I have seen it change several times already.

I made more money my first year out than the 5 years I was in combined.If I had made minimium wage while in the service with overtime pay I would have had much fatter paychecks.
I actually liked doing what I was doing but didn't want my wife and daughter to wind up being moved around for 20-30 years.

When I was in the engine room,Main Prop, we had no ET's in our dept.Now I understand that Engineering is fat with ET's and everything is controlled by computers.Don't know if I could survive that kind of engine room. :huh:

I was in the Guard back when it didn't matter what your rate was , we were all janitors of the sea . The 4 year was 74 to 78 and spent 3 year of it in Curtis bay , Baltimore Md. (the armpit of America) on a 110' Tug, USCGC Apalachee . It's where I got the name Lewdog at, and is why I do ADM hunts ,which leads to why I'm posting . I see a lot of Va. Coasties in here and if any of you want to do a hunt sometime just say the word. The Virginia Waterfowlers' Association is here for you .

Hey guys, I didn't say it earlier, but BM1 and XPO on the Osage in Pittsburgh. Got my 16 ft carolina skiff in Pittsburgh ready to goose hunt when you guys are ready. Just came from NC on leave and was surprised at the few amount of ducks. Mike anything in E-City? Went this afternoon and the F-ing sparkplug came out of engine, don't ask me, BM, so I called it an early day and got in the treestand.

Have fun,

John
