Happy Birthday, Devil Dogs

Your beloved Corps is 232 years young.

Now, us Coasties like to pick squares with a lot of the branches of service: the Chair Force stole our uniforms, the Navy and Air Force are scared of a little weather; but rarely will I go around insulting the Marines.  One of your former commandants explained it better than I can:

Gen. Krulak on the Coast Guard: The Coast Guard and the Marines share something in common. When you need them, and you see them – you know everything is going to be all right.

Semper Fi, Leathernecks.  Here’s to another 232 years of kicking ass!

  1. The Air Force is afraid of a little weather?

    Mjr. David Ruvola

    SSgt. James Mioli

    TSgt. Alden Smith (R.I.P Oct 31st, 1991)

  2. I’m just saying, when you think “Holy shit, that weather is impossible to fly/navigate a boat in”, then next thing you’re going to see will be an orange and white helicopter/boat.

    It’s what we do, and no one is better at it.

    Like they say, “You have to go out – you don’t have to come back.”

  3. To all you Coasties…MSgt. Jim Mioli is no boyscout. Definitely not afraid of a little weather!!! He’s one rough & tough Air Guardsman!! If you’re ever in trouble out on the deep blue…you want him to come after you. He takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’!! I outta know! lol ;p Perfect.
