    The Dude (Jeff Bridges) was in the Coast Guard during Vietnam. His dad, Lloyd was in during WW2 and his brother Beau joined in 1959 and served 8 years in the Reserves Humphrey Bogart was an Auxiliarist during WW2. Chris Cooper (the bad guy from the first Bourne movie) served in the Reserve.

    That would be Bluto...

    Popeye is an independent sailor (or "sailor man," as he puts it)...Many debate the military service in which Popeye served. In Fleischer's Popeye Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves, Popeye is found guarding his Coast Guard Station. Popeye even tells Ali Baba to "stop in the name of the Coast Guard." Later, other cartoonists place Popeye in other services, such as the Navy and Merchant marines.

    I want to finally set it free, So show me how to see what Your mercy sees, Help me now to give what You gave to me...Forgiveness, Forgiveness
