Arctic Operations

The hustle and bustle of the Arctic is still topping the conversation charts these days. Here are two ways to tune in to what the Coast Guard is doing in the region:

One, Coast Guard Commandant, Admiral Thad Allen, is conducting a bloggers roundtable tomorrow at 3 p.m. (ET) to discuss the security, environmental, scientific, and economic impacts of the increasingly accessible and active Arctic region.

***Also the Pentagon Channel is conducting a follow-in one-on-one interview with the Commandant after the roundtable. Stay tuned for the time and segment…

Two, CGC Healy is underway conducting joint operations with the Canadian Coast Guard Cutter Louis S. St-Laurent and is putting out some unbelievable multimedia.
