Day 4

Today is the 220th birthday of the US Coast Guard!
The original photo (copyright USCG) is of the Cutter Escanaba rolling in 15 ft seas while rescuing a disabled lobster boat 200 miles out of Nantucket.
Since 1790, over 1 million saved.

  2. I mentioned in the combox above that my son loves your blog. I just wanted to say that while we are very entertained by the regular posts, it’s posts like this one that really make me giddy. Your picture inspired a little discussion about the history of the Armed Forces in general and the Coast Guard specifically. Thank you for that!
