Hello, I've been on these forums for a while posting about wanting to go to the Coast a Guard Academy before deciding not to apply. I am currently a Freshmen at Western Illinois University studying emergency management with a minor in Environmental and Occupational safety. After a long time researching various options within the military and outside the military. I've came to the conclusion that the Senior Executive Service may be the best bet for what I want to do with my career. Does anyone have any experience with the Senior Executive Service. If so how would you suggest one plan their career so maybe they can hold that rank of Senior executive one day?
