Week in the life of the Coast Guard: Boot camp

As we’ve shared Coast Guard missions from around the country, you may have noticed one particular group of Coast Guard members was missing – the Coast Guard’s newest recruits. We’ve saved Coast Guard Training Center Cape May until today to share all of their photos together. Cape May is the nation’s only Coast Guard enlisted accession point so take a look at all the moments captured throughout the week.
