who said anyhting about dying for bush, the coast guard defends our coast and unless the war comes to our soil i wont be fighting in the war, plus if i where to die in the line of duty it would be for my country not for some idiotic president. If I die in the line of duty it will most likely be on a search and rescue mission or trying to stop a drug run. The United States Coast Guard is more of a humanitarian branch of the military, we are the "everyday heros", we are the maritime law enforcement, the maritime safety, marine enviroment protection, maritime mobility and national defense. Our core values are Honor, Respect and Devotion to Duty. so next time you try to speak out against the Coast Guard or any branch of the military, do a little research first, because you'll end up lookin like an ass again.
