Steam 64 ID: 76561198145680082

Do you possess any real life Law Enforcement or Military Experience?: Not actively, but i'm looking to join the RAF in just over a year.
(Please note, Stolen Valor / Impostering is not only a crime in the USA but as well as most commonwealth countries, any such acts will result in an immediate blacklist permanently from this faction as well as potential legal action, this is taken very seriously, as such, if you wish to gain any benefit here as a veteran, evidence of service may be required to be sent to the Captain or Admiral (Dillon Boyd) privately and confidentially.)
Should you be accepted into the US Coast Guard, what standards and values would you bring and standby here?: (Min. 50 Words) I believe i could be extremely beneficial towards the United States Coast Guard. I've got past experience in multiple roleplay servers, milsims, etc, and i believe i could provide a beneficial experience towards this team of people. Joining the USCG has been an aim of mine ever since I've first heard about it on Doug's stream, i wanted to jump on this train as fast as possible as i feel it could provide me experience all while i provide the USCG with my current experience. I've been a part of the coast guards/naval equal departments/aviation departments on many other servers, some have been taking a lot more serious than others. I feel as if the KSP has provided me with what i need and i feel as if the Coast Guard could provide me with much, much more. I understand that other applications for a position like this may have in-real-life experience within the Military, or even currently still serving, but i can promise to you that i could be as beneficial to this department just as much as they could. I feel as if i'm able to provide the members of this faction a remember-able experience that may even provide them with some sort of life experience for the future. I'll professionally and precisely deal with my department (If put in charge of one) and make them into the officers they are meant to be to set an example for any future applications. I always have and always will dedicate my time to such an honourable position within such an honourable faction and put all of my time into being out in the field and making officers better themselves to not just benefit the USCG, but also themselves and the Kamdan County. I want to use my experience as a Coastguard's'man before to help as much as i can within the USCG to help them perform smoothly and precisely in any tasks we need to complete. I've always loved the thought of Aircraft, fixed wing or rotary, hence why i'm applying for an Aviation CO Position. In terms of aviation, i feel as if i could provide you with a lot more experience than others may be able to, and i believe that can be easily proven.
In your own perspective, what is the difference between being a leader and being a manager?: A leader works with their team to get the tasks done, he goes into combat with them to assist them in any way possible, whereas a manager may sit back and, well, "manage" things. A manager may not get involved yet they may stand back and watch their troops fail.
What is the motto of the United States Coast Guard?
What do you believe makes a good Leader?
A good leader in the United States Coast guard is a leader that leads his troops and doesn't just manage his troops. A leader completes tasks alongside the USCG core and doesn't sit back and relax in his offce. A good leader needs to be prepared to lead, you should be able to judge when to listen, when to think, and when to decide. When making decisions you need to stick to them and not divert from them if you truly think the decision you made is correct for you and your officers. If a leader somehow thinks he is wrong in his decision, he needs to push his ego aside, and make a conclusion as to why he was wrong, what went wrong. You can only lead if others are prepared to follow, which means you need to earn the USCG's respect, skills & patience. When being a leader, your tasks matter but the role of a leader is to motivate those around you, those you are leading. A good leader needs to know when to step in and take responsibility and when to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, they shouldn't be rushed into a decision which they aren't comfortable with.
What methods would you employ to improve the faction?
I could provide the USCG with intense heavy training of it's troops that you may find unique to me. Joining the coast guard could be beneficial to me and the USCG, i could provide this faction with quality leadership skills to set a vision for the USCG with a clear sense of direction and a clear picture of the destination i want to be in. Good leadership and communications are some of my virtues, i believe i could engage people through communication and technical skills to lead them further. Leaders are constantly on display and under hate, so you can't be thin skinned and be in a position like this, that's exactly why i feel i could improve this faction. A good leader will put effort into building the right team, the right faction with people they trust and whose judgement they respect, i feel as if i'm ready to do this alongside fellow command members.
What rank do you believe is the most important in the US Coast Guard?
The general enlistees, ranks like Seaman, Seaman Recruits, etc. Without these there would be no coast guard, it would be left to high command to do everything. Low ranks like these are crucial towards the USCG as they make our faction what it is.
