    No Tacoma's because everyone who has one was smart enough to leave. And no I've never jumped out of a perfectly good airframe. I'm to much of a "computer geek" so I'm told. But I have respect for those who do.

    What do these guys in the Coast Guard do when there are no national emergencies? Do they still get paid? Is the CG another division of the National Guard and operate in a similar fashion? Thanks.

    Really? Hmm the Coast Guard. We are the fifth branch of the Military and fall not under the Department of Defense but we under the Department of Homeland Security (post 9/11 before that we were Dept of Transportaion). The Coast Guard consists of roughly 34,000-38,000 active duty members and our missions include drug interdiction, migrant interdiction/rescue, search and rescue, maintaining aids to navigation (bouy's, lighthouses) and maritime law enforcment. We have High Endurance Cutters and Meduim Endurance Cutters that make patrols in the Caribbean, Bering Sea, North Atlantic and currently over in the Persian Gulf. We have small boat stations, air stations, bouy tenders and Polar Ice Breakers. We have been around since 1790 (formely known as the Revenue Cutter Service) we have served in every major conflict in the history of the US. We have had a member win the Medal of Honor and recently had 2 members pass while doing ice diving operations in the artic. So we are in actuality a small service with a big job!
