    Coast Guard guys in the helicopters going out on those rescues are a different kind of crazy. I wish I was 10% as brave as they are.

    The US Coast Guard & The American Red Cross are 2 of our country's most under appreciated heroes. How ironic for one to be honoring the actions of the other. Both should be praised for all they do & the conditions under which they operate.

    These folks are the real hero's not the glorified athlete's that so many idolize.
