(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)
The values I would bring to the coast guard are honesty, loyalty and integrity. I believe in treaty everyone fairly and making sure always making sure I do my best to make sure I can help them out in any way possible so we can grow together as a CG instead of working against each other.
In your own perspective, what is the difference between being a leader and being a manager?
The difference between a manager and a leader or widely different. To be a leader is the guy up front with the grunts leading by example showing them how its done and motivating them. The leader shows that he is still down to do the grunt work while doing his other leadership obligations. A manager is a guy in the back telling everyone how it should be done while doing none of the grunt work himself.
What is the motto of the United States Coast Guard?
What do you believe makes a good Leader?
I believe a good leader is the guy willing to to be upfront with the group showing them how its done while also improving on himself. A leader will self motivate and help out his team so they become a more effective unit. I always considered a leader more of a big brother type of role. Hes not there to hold your hand but hes not going to ignore you either. Hes going to make sure you are moving in the right direction and will be with you every step of the way
What methods would you employ to improve the faction?
Methods I would use to improve the faction are weekly meetings with your department heads to make sure we are on the same page and moving in the right direction as a coastguard. Group training would be implemented to make sure we are improving as a group learning the most recent strats and always improving communication. I would implement a closer FTO system to make sure the new guards are getting the proper training and more of it. I like to personally work with new people and stuff they need to work on so.
What rank do you believe is the most important in the US Coast Guard? (All of them is not an answer).
The most important rank in the coastguard to me is the captain. I think its the captain because he controls the entire show and a seaman doesn't have the same power and influence as the captain to get things down. Yes the seamen are most likely doing a lot of the grunt work but the captain keeps the show rolling for everyone doing a lot of the behind the scenes things we dont see until we get a new change in sops or whatever it may be.
Anything else you would like to add?
Thank you for your consideration.
