Being a Civilian Maritime Attorney for the Coast Guard?
I am about to begin my undergraduate studies at the University of Florida. I plan on majoring in political science with a minor in Spanish or foreign affairs. I plan on becoming a Maritime Attorney and would love more than anything to become a civilian maritime attorney for the coast guard.

Thanks! And thanks to all those who serve our country!
