Just a heads up for anyone using email to the REC in New Orleans on the webpage...
One of the links has an incorrect email address.
If one clicks on the "Email" part of "Email Application" wording, it directs your email incorrectly to "REC-NEW-AppSubmision@uscg.mil" address. If one clicks on the "Application" part of "Email Application" wording, it directs your email to the correct "REC-NEW-AppSubmission@uscg.mil" address. There is a letter "s" missing from the address. The "Email" bubble above it directs the email to "D08-SMB-RECNewOrleans@uscg.mil" I think this address works fine.
Obviously, I know this because my application went to the wrong email address. It sat in nowhereville for over a month. I have yet to get anyone from NMC to acknowledge that this is in error.
