Cutter Diligence helps local community get ‘Dili-fit’

Homeported in Wilmington, North Carolina and moored in the heart of downtown, Coast Guard Cutter Diligence has built and maintained a close relationship with the community that it calls home. While inport, the crew, much like other Coast Guard crews around the Nation, engages daily with the members of the local community. Recently, the crew decided to take this engagement one step further – with a weekly fitness class open to members of the public.

The Coast Guard on canvas: 2014 Art Program

The dedication and character of the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard provide inspiration for many across the nation. Some of the most inspired are Coast Guard artists who belong to the Coast Guard Art Program. Whether sculptor or painter, these select artists create works of art that tell the story of the service’s missions, heroes and history. This week, the Coast Guard Art Program will hold its inaugural exhibition of the 2014 collection at the Salmagundi Club in New York City. Today, we feature three members of the Coast Guard Art Program who have been inspired by the Coast Guard’s missions and people: James Consor, Tyson Snow and Karen Loew.
