Obey your Comander and Chief!
I don’t see anything about transgenders in the logo. Somebody needs to get on that.
another creation of Alexander Hamilton, my favorite founder.
Happy B Day and Semper Paratus to my 1st real and best job.

Thankful I made it back each time and prayers for those who didn’t like a few of my shipmates at St Pete Air in 69.
Nobody ever thinks about the Coast Guard until they need them. Simply forgot us for years, probably because our uniforms were just like the Navy’s except for the Treasury shield on our sleeve. Nice to see more attention in the last couple of decades. But I could do without the transgender issue. I’ve been retired for 20 years but still feel like a coastie.
Let's hear it for the Fascist Homeland Security that owns the CG and the Admiral who is a holdover from the Kenyan Regime!.
From those here in NJ that I talked to,there is no money to run the ships and copters. I guess the money goes to dick removal and social activism.
Thank-you for letting my late father served during World War 2.
Thank-you for your service.
The current CG is over tasked, undermanned, underfunded, and suffers from mission creep. But God bless the men and women who suck it up and sacrifice every day!
I was a Naval Officer but I worked for the CG Atlantic Fleet Commander for a while. I got along famously with the rest of the staff.

Happy Birthday! Make your brother buy you a drink instead of the other way around!
Coasties are wonderful and I thank them for their service.
That said, everyone needs to be aware of what their Commandant did earlier this week...went against Trump—publicly said and looks like they are going to legally challenge TRump...in support of the obama transgender agenda :(
If you were a Coastie or know a coastie, perhaps it might be appropriate to voice your concern to appropriate parties—replace the Obama appointed Commandant!
From the article:
Zukunft added that he then reached out to now former Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly who became White House chief of staff on Monday who in turned reached out to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.
Weve stood up a TIGER TEAM of our [Judge Advocate Generals Corps] officers, Zukunft said, referring to the legal branch of the Coast Guard.
Always has been. There may be more police officers in NYC than coasties. We never said no to any mission. Thanks for the ping.
Thanks for your service, A!
Her brother is visiting her in Seattle this weekend. He’s a real cheapskate.
