Hi Brittany.  Welcome. My brother is USCG and actually just left Petaluma for San Francisco. Apparently there is nothing up there.  At least for him.  Where do you live?

It seems for me that you just adjust and get use to it. But stay busy and communicate with each other as much as you can.

What is your husband going to do in the Coast Guard? Most likely my husband will be one of his instructors. LOL haven't seen anyone say the base where Dh works. Pretty cool.

I will tell ya your husband isn't having any fun out there. There is NOTHING and I means NOTHING around that base. Its in the midle of of know where and not even close to the ocean they bus the boys/girls up to the ocean LOL.

Holly you are right there is NOTHING up there. Petaluma is a hick town and the base is literary in the middle of cow farms. Is your brother going to be stationed in SF?

Yep. Stationed on treasure island patrolling the Bay. Not the golden gate, thank God. Although he has his fair share of jumpers. He loves SF. I love to visit him there. It's such a great city.

I wonder if your husband was one of my brothers instructors. He was in the IT school there.

He'll get the once a year jumper from the Bay Bridge though its getting harder for the cars to stop on the Bay Bridge now that the new section is closer to being open.

If he went through it any time between last week and August most likely Chief Meredith was his instructor. :)
