SPARs to the rescue

When FDR signed into law the acceptance of women to the United States Coast Guard, the SPARs were born. These women replaced men at shore stations so they could be released for Sea Duty. These women volunteered their time and duty when their country needed them most to take over arduous tasks at both Officer and Enlisted levels. So I don't think we're alone when we give a big Bravo Zulu to the women who bare not one, but two United States Coast Guard Cutters.
