Google Veterans Day Logo

Today on the Google home page is a special Veterans Day Logo, Doodle, for Veterans Day. But if you look closely, Google has a bug or mistake with the logo.

The Coast Guardsman, the third from right, the uniform is incorrect. There should be stripes on the sleeve showing the officer's rank. Jim Rooney (aka CG Brat), posted about this in the Google Web Search Help forums saying:

The Coast Guardsman (3rd from right) is wearing an officer's hat and waving. However an CG officer's uniform (Service Dress Blue) should have " sleeve accouterments" (e.g., "stripes") reflecting the rank of the officer. The drawing shows no stripes on the sleeve, nor any rank insignia (enlisted or office), as both officers and enlisted sailors will have some form of rank insignia on the sleeve.


Google Veterans Day Uniform Incorrect

Here is what the coast guard uniform looks like:

Small detail, not a huge deal, but why not point out Google bugs with Doodles?

Bing has an awesome home page today for Veterans Day as well:
