Should I join the Coast Guard? No really, I suddenly find myself with no ties to anywhere or anyone in life. I have no lease. I have a boatload of medical debt, and about $100k in law school loans. I am currently in SF, but willing to change that. What should my next move be? [more inside]

I am looking for an example of a drug bust for which the police uncovered a pattern of drug shipments not just uncovered one shipment. I am interested in looking at a pattern of drug transportation in which I can know approximately when drugs where delivered over a period of time. [more inside]

I'm liberal, non-religious, college-educated, and I think I want to join the Coast Guard through the "Blue 21" direct-to-aviation officer's program. Am I crazy? Is this a viable option? Who can I talk to, other than recruiters? [more inside]

I want to fly helicopters and actually do something useful while doing them. I don't really want to fly them fulltime. I don't want to fly helicopters in combat. News and tours are unappealing to me. Coastguard seems like the best bet, but many people have cautioned me that once you're in any military branch, you pretty much lose control over what you actually get to do or not. Other than that, I'm not sure where to look, in terms of training and then doing something with that training. Any advice on... any of that?

Depending on how my remaining job leads pan out, I'm considering joining the United States Coast Guard. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who has ever served in the Coast Guard. So I'm wondering if anyone has any personal experiences in the Coast Guard or advice on how to make the most of joining?

What exactly is the difference between the National Guard and the Reserves? Now, I know that each branch has their own Reserves set up, even the Coast Guard...so what then is the National Guard for? And for that matter, the Air National Guard?
