Think for a moment how an “Agency” known as the “Revenue Cutter Service” in the Treasury Department, could marry itself with the “Lifesaving Service”; “Lighthouse Service”; “Ice-breaking Service” and somehow construe all of these benign civil services, once combined in the form of the Coast Guard, to somehow become a “special” Branch of Military in the end. One that can come under Title 10 and the UCMJ while lording itself over and policing, regulating even “deciding” civilian affairs. Worse, to do this not from under the DOD and the Pentagon, but from under DHS? So now there is a “Special Branch of Military” that has been moved into the Department of Homeland Security!
