Places we want to go with the Coast Guard

If we have to move, we want to move here:

  • Boston, MA

  • Key West, FL

  • Hawaii

  • Seattle, WA

  • Anyplace in FL

But for now we are in Novato, CA and thankfully so. I can be near the girls while I work out a schedule with their dad. It was total coincidence that David even got Alameda. One of his supervisors thought he would do well there. We weren't even married yet, so we couldn't put down my kids as a reason for staying in the area. Him getting Alameda has really been one of the reasons we have been able to stay together, get married, and grow as a family.

We have two more years in Novato, CA and then we will ask to stay on for another 2-4 years. David needs seatime on a ship. Which means he has to go out on a boat for 3 months on, then 3 months home, 3 months gone, 3 months home. There are a lot of ships going out of Alameda, SF Bay Area. The Coast Guard has you make a Dream Sheet with your top choices and any reasons why you need an area. We will put down that we need to stay in the area for my children. However, the Coast Guard is the boss here, so we'll see...
