More than 450,00
0 men and women serve in the Army and Air National Guard, and somewhat less than 400,000 in the Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force Reserves.
What about the 8,000 members of the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve? Were we abolished overnight and given no opportunity to blog about its demise? No, I don’t think so.
One of my pet peeves is that the USCG is often forgotten by ignorant members of the press corps who think they are only 4 branches of the U.S. military.
Anyone care to write a letter to the editor of the New York Times informing them of their oversight? If so, click here
for instructions on how to do so. (Cross-posted at AN UNOFFICIAL COAST GUARD BLOG)
