Pros

I got to see this great country of ours and even got to see the world. I sailed all over the Caribbean and even sailed to Europe during my time in the Coast Guard.

Cons

A downside was that I missed a lot of holidays and family gatherings because of being underway or traveling across the country. This was fine when I was single but it became a downside when I married and had children.
