US Coast Guard in World War II SC

During World War II, the US Coast Guard effectively became America's fourth armed service. Among their many wartime duties, Coast Guardsmen played an important role in the battle of the Atlantic and the long series of amphibious landings in the Pacific. In the merciless struggle to keep the supply lines to Europe open, Coast Guardsmen manned cutters, frigates and destroyers charged with protecting the Atlantic convoys from Germany's U-boats. The Coast Guard's boat-handling expertise was often crucial in landing troops on Japanese-help islands throughout the Pacific campaign, where they manned hundreds of ships and thousands of amphibious craft, and their skills were also put to full use during the Normandy landings of June 1944. This book provides a concise account of the Coast Guard's war, fully illustrated with wartime photos and uniform plates.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
