By Patricia Kime: Coast Guard Eyes Changes to Physical Standards, Tattoo Policy to Retain Troops
The Coast Guard is 14.6 percent women and 17 percent persons of color, including 5.9 percent African-American. To address what Schultz called a disparity between the service and the general population regarding diversity, the Coast Guard plans to commission a study on retaining underrepresented minorities, similar to the report it will release next week.

It also is examining its tattoo restrictions, policies that prevent single parents from enlisting and physical standards based on body mass index that limit recruitment and retention.

Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard Jason Vanderhaden explained that the Coast Guard’s physical standards are largely based on body mass index, a measurement that doesn’t account for fitness, ability to do one’s job, muscle mass and overall body composition.

Andrew Green, now 52, of Jamesville, spent four months in jail on a statutory rape after pleading guilty. He became a registered (though not public) sex offender. He retired from the military after being arrested on rape charges.

State Supreme Court Justice Deborah Karalunas Wednesday ruled that Green must pay the victim $125,000 for past and future damages, as well as $25,000 to punish him for taking advantage of the underage victim.
