Welcome to day nine of voting for Coast Guard Video of the Year!
Two weeks ago, we offered you a sampling of the top 11 Coast Guard videos of 2009. Now, it is time for you to vote on your favorites and help us select your top three videos.
Our ninth video features the rescue of a man whose canoe flipped in heavy surf in the Necanicum River near Gearheart, Oregon by an aircrew from Air Station Astoria and is narrated by Lieutenant Commander Robert Potter. Click here to watch the video and cast your vote.
The Compass blog will continue to highlight one video per day together with audio from a member of the Coast Guard unit involved in the mission through December 31, 2009. You can then follow the link to the Coast Guard YouTube “Video of the Year 2009″ playlist to use the rating and comment feature to cast your vote.
Votes will be accepted until January 8, 2010. The units with the top three videos will receive a Flip video camera to enhance their ability to capture and share imagery of their operations. For more on how to vote, click here.
