Heroes Wear Life Jackets

Have you seen this?

I'm liking it. A much better approach than that mandatory use regulations that the Coast Guard has been pushing lately.
cruising is entirely about showing up--in boat shoes.

Re: Heroes wear life jackets

The life jacket oath? Is that some new version of the Tea Party?

Still, good spot. Like seat belt use is today, few in 30 years will understand why it was ever an issue.

Re: Heroes Wear Life Jackets

Or you could simply avoid jumping out of Helicopters or getting aboard sinking vessels etc? No mention of those immersion suits.

Anyway, good to see that the USA has now cleared the overdraft - and got money to p#ss away on waving shrouds.
