Not Your Father's Coast Guard: The Untold Story of U.S. Coast Guard Special Forces

Not Your Father's Coast Guard: The Untold Story

While the Coast Guard's many battles at sea in the War on Drugs are widely known, its participation in the ground offensive is not. Indeed, the Guard didn't just send its cutters to interdict narcotics-laden vessels attempting to bring their illicit cargo into Uncle Sam's territorial waters, it sent ground troops to foreign lands to train their forces and, when necessary, directly engage the enemy. But to create the type of force needed was no small task and would not be without tribulation, both from within and outside the organization. The road traveled to complete the mission was laden with obstacles. This is not a story about the Coast Guard you know, or think you know. Rather, this is a story about the other side, the side that history nearly forgot; not the standard, but the antithesis of standard. It is a story that will undoubtedly make even the most seasoned Coast Guardsmen question their understanding of the organization to which they belong. To be sure, "This is not your father's Coast Guard".

"Coast Guard" Bottle Opener and Cap Catcher - Handcrafted by a Vet - 100% Solid Pine 3/4" Thick - Cast Iron Opener and Galvanized Bucket - To Empty, Twist the Bucket! Gift for Heroes

"Coast Guard" Bottle Opener and Cap Catcher -

Superior Quality - Made of 100% Solid Wood. It's Over 15" Tall and 3/4" Thick! This isn't one of those little namby pamby fiber board, particle board or plastic Bottle Openers! And it doesn't leave that big, messy, ugly blob of caps like the magnetic ones do. Fine Looking! Product photos are examples and the exact grains and the colors may vary due to the differences in computer monitors and yes, every tree is a bit different as well. My photography does not do justice to the beauty of the wood. These are not made in bulk in China. We hand select the wood then sand it and stain by hand. Then just to make sure it will last for you and provide exceptional durability, we add a two coats of a professional grade polycrylic seal to it. This mounts securely to a wall, fence post, or anything a screw will bite into. Two mounting screws are included for easy installation using the pre-drilled holes. Fits nice & snug to the wall, unlike some openers, it won't sway and wobble when you open your favorite beverage and you can even do it one handed! It is secured with a nylon-insert lock nut so that you can easily twist the bucket to empty it without it coming loose. Add the perfect finishing touch to your kitchen, patio, home bar, mancave, brewery, garage, rv, restaurant or taver...
