I’ve been meaning to write about this. For a good two months, at least, the Coast Guard was heavily pushing recruitment via a radio ad on my local AM station. Every break on Coast to Coast AM the commercial would play, night after night. “Were you born for the Coast Guard??” The ad must have been played at all hours and not just when I heard it. I thought this was very interesting because for some reason the Coast Guard wanted to significantly increase its numbers. They are planning for something.
