“Pull Over. License and Registration.”

Gripping Video Shows U.S. Coast Guard Stopping A Vessel Carrying Cocaine: Smugglers often will open a valve and purposefully sink their vessels to avoid seizure, dispersing evidence of suspected crimes into the ocean. Law enforcement often has just one or two minutes to evaluate whether a vessel they boarded is heading to the ocean floor.

Guardsmen, trained in boarding ships, wore helmet cameras recording the moment they ran down the vessel. “Stop your boat! Now!” one roars in Spanish as waves crash against the hull. “That’s going to be hard to get on,” he says. The boarders wore holstered pistols and night-vision goggles to prepare to peer inside the dark hull. The Coast Guard retrieved 17,000 pounds of cocaine worth an estimated $232 million from the sub.

    It’s the U.S. Coast Guard vs. the Kartel Kriegsmarine!

    Semper paratus!

    “We’re always ready for the call,
    We place our trust in Thee.
    Through surf and storm and howling gale,
    High shall our purpose be,
    ‘Semper Paratus’ is our guide,
    Our fame, our glory, too.
    To fight to save or fight and die!
    Aye! Coast Guard, we are for you.”

    That was one ballzy move and I’m amazed and proud of the men and women of our Coast Guard.

    Jumped on a moving boat barely inches above the ocean without regard to his safety. Carrying what looks like 30-40+ pounds of gear. Ready and eager for battle. Someone tell me again that women can compete with men in combat…
