The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of seven uniformed services. It is unique among the military branches in that it has a maritime law enforcement mission (with jurisdiction both domestically and in international waters) and a federal regulatory agency mission as part of its mission set. It operates under the Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, and can be transferred to the Department of the Navy by the President or Congress during a time of war.

Or as my coastie friends are want to say
The Coast Guard are the hard corp of individuals,
around whom the Navy forms in times of national disaster.
So when they tell me that they have up and transferred the Coasties out of the People's Commissariate for public safety....
