Army, Marines, Navy, Chair Force, ????
Sounds right. Can anyone confirm it?
Coast Guard is under the Dept. Of Trans. not one of the "Armed Forces"
They used to be under the Dept. of Trans. Now they are a part of the Dept. of Homeland Security.
Still, not a part of the Department of Defence. But I do think they are considered a part of the Armed Forces.
Well they don't get any respect but they should.
I respect everyone in the miltary because they are doing a job I sure in the hell wouldn't do.
oh, and if you wanna get technical, there's only 4, isn't there? Marines are under the Dept of the Navy
yup. but they have a joint chief of staff, while the coast guard does not.
never knew that. (fleet thing)
I don't think they get as much as they should, it's still an important job
I think I found where they started losing respect though:
Two Coast Guardsmen carryout navigation duties in the wheelhouse on board the 7,000-gross-ton Maritime Commission steamship American Seaman.
Super Seamen powers?
Under times of war they actually serve the navy, but right now they do alot of shit from search & rescue to fucking up drug runners.
Thats probably the big part
As I recall there's actually a bunch of them in the Persian Gulf doing Port Security wherever USN ships dock plus a 8 or 10 ships running around that area.
i dont think dealing with drug runners and chinese slave runners is exactly the safest job in the world
coast guard claims they are one of5
coast guard is currently under the dept. of homeland security. however the coast guard has been a part of every major war, and conflict that the U.S. has been involved in. A coast guard officer was in command of the flag ship on d-day, and coasties drove the landing craft on d-day. currently we are in irac servering in port security and conducting boardings world wide. at home our mission is SAR or search-and-rescue, and maritime law enforcement.
Coast Guard... is what I always thought it was.... I
