What do Beau Bridges, Jeff Bridges and Lloyd Bridges have in common? Ok… yes… they are all well-known actors… and yes they are all related!
But all three have something very patriotic in common!
They all proudly served our country in the United States Coast Guard. From left to right: Jeff Bridges (True Grit, The Big Lebowski, Oscar for Crazy Heart) served 7 years in the Coast Guard Reserve. Beau Bridges (The Fabulous Baker Boys, The Fifth Musketeer) served 8 years in the Coast Guard Reserve. And Father to Jeff and Beau, Lloyd Bridges (Around the World Under the Sea, Airplane!, Hot Shots) left Columbia Pictures to join the Coast Guard during WWII. After returning to film acting he then joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary, 11th District in California. Lloyd later did a number of public service announcements for the Coast Guard and was appointed an honorary USCG Commodore.
