The primary virtue of this book is it preserves military esprit de corps without edging into tyrannical extremism. One of the few politically neutral books on such a topic, and it does relate what is inspiring about Coast Gurad service, much like a thoughtful and inspired sermon in the midst of a world of Bible babging. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and I enjoy few such books. Estimably politically correct without at all being political. Highly recommended.
