Semper Paratus – Always Ready.
That is our Coast Guard motto.
The Coast Guard is one of our nation’s five military services. We exist to defend and preserve the United States. We protect the personal safety and security of our people; the marine transportation system and infrastructure; our natural and economic resources; and the territorial integrity of our nation–from both internal and external threats, natural and man-made. We protect these interests in U.S. ports and inland waterways, along the coasts, on international waters.
We are a military, multi-mission, maritime force offering a unique blend of military, law enforcement, humanitarian, regulatory, and diplomatic capabilities. These capabilities underpin our three broad roles: maritime safety, maritime security, and maritime stewardship.
You choose your career path based on your aptitude, physical abilities,
security clearance, desires, and motivation. The Coast Guard offers all
positions equally to both men and women.
Coast Guardsmen are paid twice a month, on the 1st and 15th, and are entitled to other cash allowances depending on their status. You also can depend on pay raises that are given based on promotions and length of service. Some specialties are eligible for bonuses. You’ll receive additional allowances for housing, if government housing is not available in the area you are stationed; food, if government dining facilities are not available in the area you are stationed, and uniforms. Other allowances may include sea pay, clothing allowance, family separation allowance, and hazardous-duty pay. All allowances for food, housing, and clothing are not subject to federal or state income taxes. You’ll receive 30 days of paid vacation a year. While on active duty, you’ll receive complete medical, dental and eye care, at no cost. Learn more about TRICARE by visiting www.tricare.mil. Through the Montgomery GI Bill, we’ll help you pay for college or vocational technical training. Coast Guard members, both active duty and reserve, may also take advantage of the tuition assistance program that pays for courses you take part time.
