My Leaving For a While

Post by JeffCvt »

Hey everyone!

This is a post just to let you all know about what's going on. In about a week, I will be going to basic training for the United States Coast Guard.

I am going to spend two months in basic, during which I will have zero access to the internet, and only limited access to my phone in the final two weeks (And that's only a maybe). As such, I cannot continue as a mod on the forums for this period in time.

In my absence, Hlaoroo will be filling in for me.

I will be back once I'm done, so don't celebrate too hard. :lol: I'm going to miss the forum while I'm gone, but I guess on the bright side, I'll have two months of unread comics to catch up on. :P

So, a Coast Guard is like a Navy jack-of-all-trades right? That's quite heavy.

God speed then. Hope you'll complete your training with smooth sailings. Then you'll join the honourable ranks of forum members who serve the military here :3

Not quite. In the United States, the Coast Guard guards... well, our coast. :P For the most part, we tend to stay close to our shore. Shallow water sailors as we're known. Because we're so small compared to the other branches, everyone tends to know how to do everyone else's job just in case, but we're not really a jack-of-all-trades.

The Coast Guard is also deployed to protect US interests overseas. Coast guard cutters are often found, for example, in anti-piracy task forces and guarding US Navy facilities and vessels in the Middle East. The Coast Guard is part of the Department of Homeland Security (formerly it was managed by the Department of the Treasury) but reports to the Department of the Navy in times of declared war.

So are you calling Jeff a mutant? Maybe he'll be recruited by Dr. X! 8-)

Good luck Jeff. I promise to not set anything on fire. But I can't promise to not cover the forums in candy corn.

Thanks for the well wishes guys. I'll be sure to keep them in mind.

As of now, you won't see much of me. For the next 20 hours or so, I'll be able to check in from my phone, and probably will, but after that you won't hear from me for the next 5 or so weeks at least. And only on occasion after that until I finish.

Remember Jeff,
BASIC training is designed to test you, not break you! So remember it's a details game, and you'll make it just fine. Cheers, and I wish you all the best for the next two months! We'll keep praying for you - Be sure to store up those stories so that you can tell us all about it when you graduate from BASIC.
