Day 9: Coast Guard Video of the Year

Video of the Year contest

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

Last 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 ninth video features Air Station Clearwater rescuing two men from the water after their boat capsized and they were left clinging to the hull.  Petty Officer 2nd Class Morgan Miholics, the flight mechanic and hoist operator in the video, narrates the b-roll footage.
