Recipe for success: FS1 Bethany Clark

Many Coast Guardsmen join knowing they want to serve their country but aren’t quite sure how. Not Petty Officer 1st Class Bethany Clark. Clark joined the Coast Guard in 2009 knowing exactly what she wanted to do; she wanted to be a chef. A 2006 graduate of Johnson & Whales University in Providence, R.I., Clark studied culinary nutrition and wanted to take her talents to sea.

Aloha Coast Guard Cutter Jarvis

After more than 40 years of service to the nation, Coast Guard Cutter Jarvis has retired from active service. Led by their motto, “Dedicated to Excellence,” the ship will leave behind a powerful legacy, shaped by the men and women who have proudly served aboard the 378-foot ship over the last four decades.


Coast Guard Cutter Jarvis: The last cruise

With this in mind, we decided to focus on what we will be keeping with us instead of what we will be losing. Soon we will be leaving Jarvis behind for another ship, the Morgenthau. Yet, we will remain the same capable, hard charging crew.
