Yeah but you guys fall under DOHS, they have more important things to worry about like monitoring the interwebz

Yeah....We are the largest part of DHS- Still doesn't help our budget. I once heard that the budget for the Marine Recruiting programs exceeds the Coast Guard annual operating costs (not including personnel)

As a future Coastie, I think we are often forgotten as a military force. The CG have been in every wars since Washington took power. We protected the U.S from every form of attacks possible ( pirates, drug traffic, immigrants, terrorism...) and we still get denied acknowledgement. I say BS !

Not yet. The vast majority of 65 drivers are going to HITRON or Atlantic City for second tours. AK might be an option if there are spots open...cause I don't want to go to either of those other two....
The CG get rid of the Augustas? If so why?

Lol amongst a few other things! Granted a major portion of what we do is life guard-ish but before being called the Coast Guard, we were the Revenue Cutter Service...way way back. That lead to drug interdiction, then life saving stations/light boats/light houses. Now as we fall under DHS we conduct port security, vessel security, recreational and commercial vessel boardings to ensure compliance with all federal laws, drug interdiction, we work closely with CPB on both borders, we have tactical law enforcement teams that have been and are currently deployed around the world, some in Iraq, others on board Navy ships doing drug interdiction and anti-piracy ops.

Cause they weren't ours to begin with

The HITRON program was a trial thing at the outset and the CG did not have a helo in the inventory to meet the mission- so they leased the Augustas. The lease ended in 2008 and by that point the Dolphin (MH-65) was capable of supporting the HITRON mission...so they non-renewed the lease and transitioned the JAX Squadron to 65s.

That whistle was a couple of things. The tailrotors have changed and the engines have been swapped. The right side doors don't fall off any more either....

Look at it like this. If the Resident would have remembered you then your people downrange would have had to hand in their ammo too.
