    What CSM said, "Happy Birthday, Coast Guard!" Thank you for all you've done and are doing!

    If you f*ckers would learn to get out of sight of land the Navy might take you in.

    Happy birthday to our board Coasties. Ooh Rah!
    My quota of bullshit cop outs from closed minds is full today, Tomorrow's not looking good for you either.

    "Eagle" is a magnificent ship. Anyone who has the chance should tour her.
    Show a military ID and you might just get a personal tour, especially if a retiree.
    I was able to get a full tour due to knowing a former Main-Mast Captain BM1 -
    best man with a Bos'un pipe I ever met.

    Default Happy Birthday Coast Guard

    Congrats on your celebration. Proud to call you fellow seamen/women.

    Never forget: Psalm 107:23-31 King James Version (KJV)

    23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
