Per ACN 080/21, a new edition of the Coast Guard Recruiting Manual, COMDTINST M1100.2 (series) is available.
The Manual has been completely revised from its previous version, reducing the volume by almost half by limiting its focus to Service policy and by consolidating and clarifying repetitive or conflicting content. A thorough review of the entire Manual is strongly recommended. Major changes include: Added Appointment Grade Lieutenant (O-3), USCGR for a Direct Commission Aviator who previously served as an O3 or higher in any U.S. Armed Force. Adjusted Service Obligation requirements for Direct Commission Lawyers with respect to their bar admission status. Added Reserve Enlisted Accession Program information.
