I hate mods.
WTF does Accord know about the Coast Guard...
Good thing I have it disabled.
I know nothing but I have questions. What is a HH-60 Jayhawk or HH-65 Dolphin when they're at home and what do they spend their time doing?
What does that have to do with Accord?
Less Accord, more Coast Guard.
wow i forgot i said all that shit, too bad its all true. haha
SAR - search and rescue . USCG is also now tasked with protecting the airspace over D.C . aside from dolphins and jayhawks we also have HITRON helos , which are armed and used for drug interdiction
Yet in the end, even though we hate the Corps sometimes... it's the guys on the ground that make the difference who are making the sacrifice. Not some pretty haired desk jockey who's complaining he broke a fingernail at the gym during lunch chow.
Yeah we all want to sit at a nice desk or be in the rear and have all the accommodations but without the brainwashing, conditions and bullshit we have to put up with there would be no one with enough ball hair to go and get dirty.
edit: but take that in stride with me being an advocate on separating the support corps from the grunts.
So they both do the same job?
i dont believe theyre using jayhawks for for capital airspace protection , but yes dolphins and jayhawks both do search and rescue . hitrons on the other hand , ive never seen one do SAR , although they do have a winch on the side , so im assuming its possible , that could also be for MSST vertical insertions
Reason for the interest was 4 RAN LEUTs just got sent on loan to the USCG for three to four years. Two HH-60 and two HH-65.
One got San Diego, one got San Francisco, on got Miami and the last got Cape Cod.
Seems like they've wrangled themselves quite a good assignment.
this is news to me , your talking about the Royal Australian Navy right ?
According to a Rear Adm. David Pekoske (no idea wtf that is) you're short of pilots
"I promise never to ridicule the Coast Guard again. You Navy rejects are alright!"
YAY COAST GUARD! SEMPER PARATUS MOTHERFUCKER!
well you have a rear admiral upper half, and a rear admiral lower half... only difference is the paycheck, they are flag officers. and get to have stars on their collars and personal flags that get flown when they are onboard.
i knew everything else, but personal flags? Just a flag that represents anyone of that particular rank is onboard, or what?
I am aware what an Admiral is, just not who that specific one was and what job he occupied.
I believe all general officers have their own flags, watch a press conference where the joint chiefs are. And next to the American flag and the branch flags, each general officer will have his or her own flag. I know this is true for army.
You don't want to be in my sig
