Day 5: Coast Guard Video of the Year

Video of the Year contest

Welcome to day five of voting for Coast Guard Video of the Year!

Earlier this week, we offered you a sampling of the top 11 Coast Guard videos of 2010. Now, it is time for you to vote on your favorites and help us select your top three videos.

Our fifth video features members of Port Security Unit 307 and the Haitian Coast Guard providing medical attention and medicine during an orphanage relief project after the magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the Port-au-Prince. Capt. Steven Baynes, Coast Guard Liaison to Joint Task Force Haiti who was working with the PSU, narrates the b-roll video.
