The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces[6] and one of the country's seven uniformed services. The Coast Guard is a maritime, military, multi-mission service unique among the U.S. military branches for having a maritime law enforcement mission (with jurisdiction in both domestic and international waters) and a federal regulatory agency mission as part of its mission set. It operates under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, and can be transferred to the U.S. Department of the Navy

Stop allowing test takers to become leaders. I've delt with some of the most poisonous people in my life who are superiors because they crushed a test to advance. Just because you have time in service and time in grade does not make you a leader. yes you deserve a shot but only by passing a board made up of E7s and above from every shop in your command or something to that effect.
