    Today’s heavy burdens may grow heavier. Semper paratus!

    I just don't see it happening. Not sure if Deepwater killed all of their political capital, but they're having a hard enough time modernizing the white-hull fleet.

    This article popped up on Facebook a few weeks ago and generated a stir in the CG community. I'm just not sure if this environment is advantageous for the Coast Guard. This administration certainly isn't (unless shrinking budgets and workforce is how the president shows his love).
