Describe your experience in the military.

I was on the U.S. Coast guard starting in 1995 on the Search & Rescue team. In boot camp, I achieved #1 academically in my graduating company. At graduation I received a special award and ribbon to pin to my uniform.
1st Unit: I was stationed out of Seattle. Most memorable time was spending 3 weeks on the Bearing Sea for a Sea Trail. Other awesome places I traveled was Antarctica, Australia, Fiji, and Hawaii.
2nd Unit: Stationed out of Key West, FL. Responsible for Search & Rescue. I was honored as the Weapons and Moral Petty Officer. Most exciting part of that was migrant interdiction, intercepting Cuban migrants trying to smuggled into the U.S.
