- Check out this story for some great video coverage of the ravine rescue mentioned in yesterday’s itCG post. You can also find this video and more Coast Guard video footage on our YouTube channel at USCGImagery here or on the Coast Guard Visual Imagery Web site.
- Remember the Guardian of the Week post about the off duty Coast Guardsmen who rescued a man after he fell off a cliff into the water? The three Guardians are recognized for their service and received Hero Awards from the mayor.
- When the “Guardians of the Golden Gate” delivered the trophy for an upcoming NASCAR race by helicopter, it was certainly a different sort of Coast Guard effort but nonetheless an important community relations event and a way to showcase our service.
- Yesterday, Compass mentioned that a man on an air mattress was rescued in Lake Erie. Well, he said he was “relaxing.” Although he was arrested, it wasn’t for floating on the air mattress. I still think there is more to this story and its got to be an interesting one.
