Paratus Report: March 2017, Episode 2

The newest episode of the Coast Guard Paratus Report is now live! The Paratus Report is a workforce news program focused at keeping Coast Guard members informed of what’s happening throughout their Coast Guard. The episode will air monthly on the official Coast Guard YouTube channel, and right here on Coast Guard All Hands with additional information.

This month’s episode covers the following:

Pistol Qualification Course

A new pistol qualification course has been pilot tested by Coast Guard members and implementation has begun. This is the first restructuring of the course in more than four decades.

Petty Officer 1st Class Nathanael Kruse, maritime enforcement specialist at Sector Puget Sound, talks about the new course and the positive impacts that it will make in the field.

Shutter Shootout 2017

Each district sent in their best photos that tell the Coast Guard’s story. Now it’s up to you to cast your vote for the winner! Like March Madness brackets, Coast Guard districts and units will compete against each other in rounds. The photos with the most likes will advance until a winner is decided.
