    RIP sir, you will not be forgotten. Rather, your sacrifice will always be remembered.

    And repeated.
    There are five military services. Just because the Coast Guard is the smallest service doesn't mean they don't serve or die for their country. Look up Douglas Munro, Metal of Honor recipient who died at Guadalcanal.

    Mush, I agree with everything. I have always considered Coasties sailors. Didn't say Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines...Glad you did bring up Douglas Munro.

    Coasties have probably the toughest time: sometimes they're under Treasury, sometimes they're under DoD...

    Friggin' lawyers...

    You, guys are correct. Coast Guards were some of the first on D day to try and establish a beachhead, as well as rescue downed pilots during the Pacific campaign .

    RJF,

    "I have always considered Coasties sailors" Yes they are but - Using that thought we could say all Marines are really soldiers that work for the Navy. The Air Force is still really the Army Air Corps in blue uniforms. I would not say this, especially to a group of Marines.
