Coast Guard Command Endorsements
Just as with my earlier posts about the other armed services, it is vital for Coast Guard members to ensure that the command endorsement accurately reflects their duty limitations and degree of impairment. If you want to be found fit, it should describe how you are able to perform your duties despite your various medical conditions. If you wish to be found unfit, then each potentially unfitting condition should be mentioned in the endorsement. In doing so, it is best to provide examples as to how each condition adversely impacts you in the performance of your duties.
