Today is the 221st birthday of the oldest and continuous sea-going service: The United States Coast Guard!
It’s been over a year since I got out of the service, yet I feel obligated to recognize my branch’s birthday. 🙂 Yes it’s MY branch. I still like to call myself a Coastie. I put in a lot of years, I think I’ve earned that privilege. And it has really shaped the direction in which my life is taking. I can’t be more proud to have served in the CG, serving my country.
Some fun facts for you… I had no idea Jeff Bridges served in the Coast Guard!!! I didn’t think it was possible to like my service even more.
Happy Birthday Coasties!
