About The Claw of Knowledge

The Coast Guard does a lot - from saving lives to stopping smugglers - but most people think we literally just stand on a beach all day. I've made it my goal here at The Claw of Knowledge to change how people think about us, while also making you laugh harder than a Chief at a JG's good idea. This is your chance to help me do that!

As you know, if you're in the Coast Guard, you start out with no one knowing you exist and have to work your way up to obscurity. By supporting me here on Patreon, you'll ensure I'm able to keep cranking out comics and awesome posts that tell people who we are, while also picking up some pretty cool rewards for yourselves! The funding I get will go toward things like website redesigns and upkeep, equipment and software to help me draw comics, and access to research databases where I can find arcane secrets about Coast Guard history.

So please consider supporting me! Even if it's just a dollar - every little bit helps!

I'm doing this as a private citizen and a former Coastie. Everything on this page and in my comics is based solely on my own opinion, as a way of sharing my impression of what the Coast Guard is. Neither the United States Coast Guard nor any other component of the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of Defense has approved, endorsed, or authorized this project.

The views expressed here and in all associated comics and writings are those of the author and are not to be construed as official or reflecting the views of the Commandant or of the U.S. Coast Guard.
