Drug busts. Environmental responses. Security patrols. Lives saved. These daily operations, like many performed by you – the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard, largely go unseen by members of the public … until now.
The first video finalist will be released on Compass, YouTube and Facebook beginning Sunday, with a new video released each day through Dec. 31. You can vote for your favorite videos by liking them on the service’s Facebook or YouTube pages.
The winner will be announced Jan. 6, 2014, on Coast Guard Compass, and we can’t wait to hear from you, our Shipmates, which is your favorite!
The video above gives you a first look at the 10 finalists for video of the year. Let us know if you have any predictions for the winner and Semper Paratus!
