The Elite 8 round of March Madness is here! That means we’ve entered the next round of “Shutter Shootout” – your chance to select the Coast Guard photo of the year.
Throughout the past year, Coast Guard members, families and fans from around the world captured remarkable photographs of rescues, patrols, operations and training days to take you behind the scenes of life in the U.S. Coast Guard.
We scoured the past year’s photos and the ones with the most “likes” on Facebook made the cut. Did your favorite photo make it to the next round? Head over to our Facebook page for voting, or see the photos by using the interactive bracket below.
You can vote during each round of tournament play at the Coast Guard’s Facebook page by clicking “like” on your favorite photos. Don’t forget to check which photos are competing against each other in the bracket, and may the best photo win!
