Coast Guard Strong – O’Rian’s story

None of the challenges that 9-year-old O’Rian Jolley have stopped him from working towards his dream of being a Coast Guardsman when he grows up.

Life of a service dog: Dogs really can fly!

As I grow up I am beginning to learn more about what it takes to be a service dog. A good service dog has to be healthy, happy, confident and steady. Oh, and did I say smart? All of these traits are also traits many Coast Guardsmen have. Just as in their training, I am provided all sorts of experiences so I can be prepared. I’d like to think I am “always ready” just like they are!
