Why I Serve: Amanda Currence

When the ombudsman position became available I jumped at the opportunity. I wanted to help the command connect with the families, to create a family atmosphere with everyone and I wanted to be involved in a bigger way. I didn’t want another family going through the same things we did when we first arrived and when we got hit with a natural disaster.


Statue of Liberty

Why I serve: ME1 Jerry McAnally

Today we celebrate the moment our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence; the birth of our nation. Generations of Americans have served our nation since, safeguarding the liberties our founding fathers fought to give us. In honor of Independence Day, we asked a Coast Guardsman what it means to serve.
