It was gratitude for Admiral Schultz and the other Coast Guard members who continue to work without pay.
Out of anyone, these are the most important people in our nation and should be given the respect and pay they are due.

Tell them all I thank them and to stand fast during this embarrassing time in our American history

Thank you for guarding our shores and saving the lives of countless mariners. Our lawmakers need to get an adult in the room and get your paychecks back in your accounts. Your dedication is incredible in the middle of this unacceptable situation.

What an absolute shame. You all deserve far better that this. Thank you for your service to this Country 🇺🇸

Nothing but respect for the men and women of the Coast Guard. These folks are always “at war” with those elements that try to kill our Mariners.

While the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) has donated $15 million to the Coast Guard to go towards families in need of assistance during the shutdown, the only permanent solution is to reopen the government.
