[Tweet “VSW honors the #US Coast Guard (#USCG) with custom unit designs.”] A small but highly viable force!
So while the United States Coast Guard has the smallest force during peaceful times or during times of war there is a vital force of highly trained and focused men and women with very specific roles. As the smallest force they are still responsible for more geographical areas than one can image from all coast lines of America to the ports and waterways across this great nation.
A Kodiak Mascot For The United States!
For decades the USCG has adopted traditionally a dog for its mascot. Seen at a variety of USCG Air Stations, at graduation from the Coast Guard Academy, kept shore crews company or were seen chasing around a US Coast Guard cutter. The USCG had had a long tradition of keeping a mascot and in more recent years has come to accept the strength and overall powerful presence of a Kodiak bear. At several units request the Kodiak Club design created by Vision-Strike-Wear.Com has been seen worn and displayed by a variety of USCG personnel and it has been VSW’s honor to have been called upon to create the Kodiak Klub design in keeping with the USCG traditions.

A salute to the ranks of the United States Coast Guard!
Like the other military branches of the United States, the United States Coast Guard has its own rank structure that makes it unique and creates the same level of professionalism from the lower and learning ranks to the what is often referred to as the backbone of the USCG, the Chiefs, and of course the upper leadership found with the officers. Over the years Vision-Strike-Wear.Com has been tasked by the USCG to produce iconic and stylistic looks for the ranks which are worn on a variety of apparel items. Each of the ranks created by VSW used the ranks and found within each chevron was an image pertaining to a mission or role, cutter or other important piece of equipment recognized within the USCG. Created with the same level of detail and professionalism expected from the USCG.
