Week in the life of the Coast Guard 2015: Friday

For the past 225 years the Coast Guard has safeguarded our nation’s maritime interests, providing a 24/7 presence along America’s rivers, ports, coastline and on the high seas. But while the Coast Guard’s presence and impact is regional, national and international, our operations are often out of sight.

Until now.

From Sept. 28, 2015, through Oct. 4, 2015, we captured a week in the life of the service to highlight the missions performed by America’s Coast Guard. From standing watch or training on the water to supporting our frontline operations, over the week we will highlight the day-to-day lives of Coast Guard men and women throughout the country and overseas.

Follow along on Facebook and Instagram , as well as right here on the Compass Blog throughout the week.
