well i guess i am gonna be the only guy that points out that i am not wholly appreciative of the coast guard....came from having some boot puddle pirate train a turret mounted M-60 on me and my boat while I am being interrogated 3 nights in a row...what respect i had for them left over from my navy days has been diminished.

i was with the corps when we invaded LA during the rodney king riots and never saw that kind of bravado directed towards a peaceful civilian. i was complaining about it at a bar and later found out from a coastie friend stationed at galveston that one of the coast guard boats got too close to the sub during its commisioning and the navy vessel trained its guns on the coast guard boat warning them to keep their distance. what comes around goes around.
