I bring not the rays of the sun, but the thunderbolts from Jupiter
The USCG just put out this job video propaganda on their Gunners Mates rate, which actually isn’t that bad.
Coast Guard GMs work with everything from pistols, rifles and machine guns, to 76mm weapons systems. As a GM, they handle all weapons, ammunition, and pyrotechnics. Their A school runs 10 weeks at TRACEN Yorktown followed by equipment specific C schools that can take up to 14 weeks.
Unlike the Navy, the Coasties have no GMM or Torpedomen rates, by default making all USCG rates GMGs.
