Footage of a Coast Guard drug interdiction where one Coast Guardsman jumps onto a narco-submarine and forces the hatch open has gone viral. And for good reason. It was possibly the most insane thing I've seen all week, but it's actually not a shock to me. The Coast Guard does insane stuff like this all the time, but it's never really talked about as much.

I get it, we all mock the Coasties. It's the price you pay for being the little brother. But when you consider this, their elite snipers, and their track record for going toe-to-toe with narco-terrorists while the rest of us are stuck at NTC or 29 Palms... I think it's time to admit that some Coasties may be more grunt than a good portion of the Armed Forces.

Just don't be surprised when that sub-busting Coastie with balls of f*cking titanium calls you a POG at the American Legion. These memes go out to you, dude. Keep giving the Coast Guard an awesome name.
