Default CG in WWII

"Their Navy counterparts were fond of calling them "Shallow Water Sailors," or they might derisively refer to them as "The Hooligan Navy," yet coastguardsmen in World War II were anything but what such denigrating references might suggest.

For starters, they manned more than 300 Navy ships, and close to three hundred more for the Army as well as some 800 cutters of varying sizes that escorted convoys; hunted submarines; and patrolled the North American coast. Coast Guard boatmen participated in every Allied invasion, too, and their service took them to North Africa, Italy, France, the Aleutians, and islands throughout the South and Central Pacific."

Here's the rest of the article, from the Summer 2002 issue of AMVETS' American Veteran Magazine:
