A diamond anniversary for the Coast Guard Auxiliary

Diamonds, rare as they are beautiful, are among the strongest and hardest known materials on Earth. It is perhaps fitting, then, that the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary – rare in their talents and strong in their commitment to service – celebrated their diamond anniversary today.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary is an all-volunteer force that keeps the nation’s waterways safer and more secure. Civilian volunteers of the Auxiliary set the standard for completing the mission and the call to serve resonates through every member.
