You know that technically The Marines are just a major claimant within the Department of The Navy. 1 of about 25 Major Claimants.
The Coast Guard is also not part of DOD but Homeland Security.

Having served with but not among some Air Force Pararescue guys, I can say that what I have been told is that they train with all the sister services specialized teams quite a lot. When they went on missions in Afghanistan it was more common for the team to consist of members from multiple services unless they were performing a very specific task. For example if a rescue call came in the Air Force had first crack at the opportunity to take it because Pararescue is specialized at getting small groups out of harms way.
