Honor, Respect, Devotion to Duty: HS2 Hayden Grabast, Coast Guard Academy Hockey Team medic

U. S. Coast Guard Hockey has a long line of history dating back before World War II. The teamwork, camaraderie and competition continue today at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Coast to coast, enlisted and officer members of the Coast Guard play for unit teams, local teams or volunteer to help out where they can.

One such volunteer is Petty Officer 2nd Class Hayden Grabast, a health services technician at the Coast Guard Academy medical clinic.
