Coast Guard Curiosity?

If you’ve read the “About” section of my blog, then you know that I am a member of the U.S. Coast Guard. In January, I will have served 6 years, and it still only seems like yesterday that I was getting off the bus in Cape May, NJ for boot camp. Since then I’ve traveled, worked, and received training in various places around the country, and 2 years ago I arrived in NYC. Now, I’m sure some of you may have seen the movie The Guardian with Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher, but if you’re still curious about some of things we do then, check out a new reality TV series on The Weather Channel called “Coast Guard Alaska”. Last Wednesday was the world premiere of the new reality series, and the second episode will air tonight, November 16th, at 2100 CST. The seven-episode series is based in Kodiak, Alaska and follows the lives of Guardsmen as they train, work, and raise their families in the harsh environment of rugged Alaska. The series will cover multiple locations, missions, and operational communities beyond Kodiak Island. “Harrowing rescues give viewers a chance to ride along with the crew on a Jayhawk helicopter, racing to rescue victims from freezing waters. Unprecedented access shows the grueling training it takes to be a rescue diver in some of the roughest seas in the world.” ~The Weather Channel Click on the link to watch a clip of the show Coast Guard Alaska
