I'm not sure if you're serious about asking if this was stupid or not. But I'm not going to be a dick and just assume you did this to validate you're doing something good for others.

Staying healthy and exercising is a good thing in any situation. If you're doing it as a means of taking your mind off of negative thoughts, and it works, then even better. As for joining the Coast Guard, if you have come to the conclusion that you want to help others and this is the best way or the most optimal way you see fit of accomplishing such a goal, then yes. It is a logical way to go about this situation.

It's certainly better than self harm.

Definitely a better way to deal with it than self harm. However, as a former military man, trust me when I say that it is a decision that will affect the rest of your life, so take a long while to think about it before joining. It will also take several years out of your life, and as an older man, believe me, these emotions are issues that you think you will never get over, but in reality you will deal with in weeks or even months.
My best advice is to just wait to be completely sure it is not a heat of the moment decision. That is what the military preys on. You have a long time to make that decision, and it is a long term decision to make.
