  1. The 47MLB at work, I remember being on the jetty watching as the 44s hauled ass out of the harbor to save someone. . . . only station that bested a 44. Stand tall Coasties.

  2. I was at Oswego station the other day and they had one of those patrol boats up on chocks for maintenance. They were headed out for ice training on Lake Ontario after lunch. this is a normal workday for the Coast Guard,the above. I was a rescue swimmer when in.

  3. Training over and over that gives a crew the ability to think and react on their feet with ingenuity and hard work on the scene. Semper crews!
