I like them! They have images of both a historical ship and a new helicopter.

I tried to talk my cousin into joining the Coast Guard a few years ago, but then he went and knocked up his girlfriend. Now he's the happily married father of 2, and has steady employment (unemployment 8 years ago was why I tried to talk him into signing up).

That sailing ship is the USCGC EAGLE, taken as a war prize by the US after WWII and made in Germany as the HORST WESSEL. Here's some info about the ship.
