Does the Navy accept Coast Guard as prior service?


Answer by  Dean (4035)

The best source of information about what the Navy does is a Navy recruiter. Go to the Navy's website and click on Locate A Recruiter and set up a meeting.


Answer by  DavyBones (149)

Yes they do. Just because you were in the Coast Guard though don't expect to be ahead of the game when you get there.

The ultimate authority on what the U.S. Navy does/doesn't do is a Navy recruiter. Go to the Navy's website and click on "located a recruiter," and make an appointment.

Coast Gaurd is considered a service branch of the military, therefore is does qualify as proir service with the Navy.


Answer by  GreenTema (223)

The Navy accepts Coast Guard service since they are both branches of the United States Military, however, officers may belittle you for the prior service.


Answer by  Latin4 (11170)

I think any prior service with the Coast Guard would be a plus for the Navy as long as you had a good record while in the Coast Guard.

In short; yes. The Coast Guard is in fact a branch of the U. S. Armed Forces just as the Navy, Marines, Army, and Air Force are.
