Soldiers for the Truth: They're Often Overlooked
It is the nation's fifth armed service and its people are some of the most competent and professional I have ever dealt with during my military service. They are the men and women of the United States Coast Guard, and because they are not a part of the Department of Defense, their contribution to national defense is often overlooked. Perhaps it is the fact that they don't belong to DoD or because they have a humanitarian mission, but it rankles me that they don't get the recognition from the public or within the government that they so justly deserve.
