We are pleased to announce the 2016 nominees for Coast Guard Video of the Year. We’ve selected the top 10 videos, the best of the best, as this year’s nominees. Now, we need your help in deciding the top Coast Guard video for 2016!
The eighth nominee features a mystery at Coast Guard Station Emerald Isle, North Carolina. Chief Petty Officer Matt Wolanzyk shares the story of Chief Warrant Officer William Finley Piner who served as officer-in-charge of the station during the Prohibition Era. Piner fell overboard and drowned in 1936, and some believe he may be haunting the Coast Guard station. Is this the top video for the year? Cast your vote!
