Mama Mary Invades the Coast Guard
Can't you smell the salt air?
Loved the boats, up close and personal! I actually got on a smaller rescue boat and a larger one.
The Stars and Stripes always make my pulse race, especially when the wind whips our flag to show it off.
Don't you love the way this guy handles his weapon?
All right, I wasn't alone. Scarlet and a bunch of women were with me on the tour. Some of us even handled "mock" weapons and took tons of notes for our future books.
We watched the men and women who patrol our waters and get the bad guys. I was amazed at their knowledge and experience and their youth.
Look at the way he holds his gun. That's real. No fancy stuff, just control.
Do you know which branch of the US military is the oldest?
