Would like to recommend a series of posts that appeared in the US Naval Institute Blog. They are written specifically for a Navy audience, but there is probably a lot here that also applies to the Coast Guard. They are written by LCdr Jimmy Drennan, a surface warfare officer and Vice President of the Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC), though all but the last were written under the pseudonym, the Salty Millennial.
They are funny, irreverent, and revealing. I have listed them below in the order they appeared, but If you are pressed for time, particularly read the last one. Even if the first few piss you off, read the last one. It is a voice we don’t often hear, but we need to.
