|U.S.C.G.C Eagle and escort. Did you know she was originally a Nazi ship? Yep. You can just make it out in the picture but on her prow remains the nautical figurehead of the Nazi Party Eagle, called Parteiadler ("Party's Eagle"), and where it once clutched a swastika, it now clings to the shield of the U.S. Coast Guard. The spoils of war.|
From Alaska to Key West Florida, and on three separate ships, my four years were probably the most memorable years of my life. To the great men and women I served with, and those that serve today, a heartfelt salute.
To the U.S. Navy.... Phhhht!
To the U.S. Army...... Phhhht!
To the U.S. Air Force.... Phhhht!
To the U.S. Marines.... You guys are great! Remember D-day!
All in good fun lads. You know we're all in this together.
