Apparently, these are screencaps from some Russian action movie, one in which the US Coast Guard was a way more aggressive fighting force than their actual mission requires. Still, the Hind looks quite dapper in its Coastie clothes don't you think?
Buddy Ebsen (actor). Joined the US Coast Guard in 1941, and was given the rank of Lieutenant, Junior Grade. This wartime rank was one step up from the rank of Ensign, the usual rank given newly appointed naval officers in peacetime. Ebsen served as damage control officer and later as executive officer on the Coast Guard-manned Navy frigate USS Pocatello, which recorded weather at its “weather station” These patrols consisted of 30 days at sea, followed by 10 days in port in Seattle.
