    Third son received a call from USCG and I need some information. What are the benefits of attending USCG and what does the path ahead look like for a graduate. (S1 is USMA and S2 is NROTC/MO). I have visited USMMA a couple of times for other reasons and am a little familiar with it. So what is the life of a CG Officer like an what are the options for their future? Your thoughts are welcome.

    USCGA graduates serve a minimum of 5 years active duty after graduation. Most serve as a Deck Watch Officer or Engineering Officer on a large cutter, others go directly to flight school. Many stay longer than their initial 5-year service commitment.

    Not sure what USMMA has to do with your questions about the USCGA.

    You may want to read these entries from the CGA website under "Careers and Outcomes."
