You do know the USCG was transferred to Homeland Security under Bush, right? Its not under the DoD except during declared war.

USCG does have a very storied history, but I'll stand by my statement it could be consolidated with the Navy. Woke-ness has invaded the USCG as well as the other uniformed services, I hate to say so that isn't an argument to keep them separate. There was rumors a while back of even consolidating the USAF with the US Army again because of the whole base consolidations going on. Lewis-McChord is a prime example of that, given that they're already consolidating command structures of the joint bases.

That'll work out as well as the F35 multirole fighter. Going from specialization (USCG, and A10 Warthog) to one size fits all simplification will never be as good.

You failed to read what I wrote accurately, I said we could go back to the Dept of Transportation, which was before the days of the LE tasks of USCG expanded. And no, I'm not a dolt, nor have I been hiding under a rock... I know they are under HS and were transfered to DOD under the time of war.

If anything, put the Navy back under the USCG, because they both came out of the Revenue Cutter Service, which had the basic responsibilities of today's USCG. We were here first!!! Phuck a bunch of slimy squids.

The courses I took online from University of Tennessee didn't allow wikipedia to be used as a reference source.
Same when I went to college, but the sources cited by wikipedia can be directly quoted and cited as appropriate.

The training and duties the CG has could be handled by whatever the navy calls their advanced individual training or tech school. Could be a special unit equivalent to SEALs requiring selection. Doesn't have to be something just any goofball E1 gets assigned too. Give it a higher ASVAB score requirement with a PT requirement to get into the selection process.

Or do with them as I indicated to the navy - just phase them into being national guard units capable of being called into Federal service when necessary. The biggest point would be to get the FedGov out of as much control and power as possible and have the individual states a lot more powerful.

#1 I've been TAD to Navy tech schools... they wouldn't even let Coasties take the tests cuz it phucked it up for the Navy guys. Waste of my time.

#2. You don't call Coast Guard units into action... they are ALWAYS necessary. The job Coasties do is ALWAYS needed. You don't shove them aside and wait to use them unless you want a lot of people to die unecessarily, drugs to enter our shores unimpeded, boating/port/ship safety to go away, pollution to be left untreated/unmonitored, Aids to Navigation to go unserviced, etc. This is the worst option you've put forward. In reality, this work would have to go to the U.S. Navy and require repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act, something we really really don't want.

USCG - SEMPER PARATUS, SO THAT OTHERS MAY LIVE.
U.S. NAVY - the only service that does NOT have an official motto.

#3. I don't disagree with the principle of reducing federal power and presence, but the military is one of a very few things that the U.S. Constitution authorizes. Reducing the military is always a bad idea. And specifically, nobody in the USCG wants to be in the Navy. Nobody in the USAF wants to be in the Army. Just like the stupid vax mandate, you would lose all the experience and top quality men and women (USCG only accepts the top candidates and highest marks on the entry test scores.) We'd all retire ASAP.

#4. Did I mention "phuck a bunch of slimy squids"?

During an average day, the Coast Guard will:


  • Conduct 109 search-and-rescue cases
  • Save 10 lives and assist 192 people in distress
  • Protect $2,791,841 in property
  • Launch 396 small boat missions
  • Launch 164 aircraft missions, logging 324 hours
  • Board 144 vessels
  • Seize 169 pounds of marijuana and 306 pounds of cocaine worth $9,589,000
  • Intercept 14 illegal migrants
  • Board 100 large vessels for port safety checks
  • Respond to 20 oil or hazardous chemical spills totaling 2,800 gallons
  • Service 135 aids to navigation
