Here's to our Coast Guard!

And congratulations to the graduates as they embark on their critical and never-ending task. At the very least they deserved a speech about THEM and the vital work they do.

1. In the area I live they protect the lives of individuals and a number of our financial institutions.

 

They are very respected around here.

10. Likewise

I live in a Coast Guard town in Oregon.

When we had an even hear a couple of years ago, one of the speakers was from the Navy. Our state Senator welcomed him with "We like and appreciate the Navy," to which the crowd responded (on cue):

But we LOVE the Coast Guard.

6. Trump couldn't give that speech, though.

He knows nothing about the Coast Guard, and isn't interested. In fact, he wants to cut its budget to pay for part of his wall. So, he blathered on about himself and his miserable existence.

9. Can you even imagine working hard, graduating and listen to some jerk whine

about how mean people are to him?

There were several speakers at my college graduation, a teacher, a parent and a student. NONE of them talked about themselves.

I guess someone could have done a worse job but it is hard to imagine.

12. Hear Hear!

The USCG is seen as gods around here. Without them, Katrina would have been infinitely worse.
