Coast Guard

Scout at First Draft notes that it’s the 217th Birthday of the US Coast Guard, one of the few components of the DHS that knows what it’s doing and continues to do it.

As someone who has sailed, and had the dubious honor of being towed back into the harbour by the Coast Guard when stranded out in the channel without wind nor motor, I admire and appreciate the efforts, the dedication (and the good sense of humour) of the Coast Guard.

I have good friends who are in the Coast Guard and they leave their base on the barrier island in weather I wouldn’t attempt to help fools that don’t understand the difference between the inland lakes and the Gulf of Mexico.

They stay busy down here.
