When ranked by inter service banter, the United States Coast Guard earns the role of the redheaded, horribly freckled stepchild. They are the butt of all branch jokes, and they deserve it. Yet, don’t let that measuring contest fool you… in reality, the Coast Guard is an absolute workhorse, constantly patrolling off shore and cracking down on drug smugglers and staying vigilant for enemy submarines. They really do deserve our respect.
At no point have I ever considered joining the Coast Guard… until I watched this ridiculously motivating video.
