We’re finding new ways to make it easier for our members to serve.
One of latest ways to support our members is with the new Surge Staffing for Parental Leave pilot program. We know the excitement of a new baby can be stressful, which is why we want you to focus on your family!
This pilot program kicked off in April, and we’ve had almost two dozen members sign up. Under this program (and at no cost to the unit), new parents AND expectant mothers are able to remove some of the stress that comes with leaving a unit temporarily to concentrate on their family at a crucial time. The program leverages the experience of our ready Coast Guard Reserve workforce, bringing on reservists to allow a new mom or new dad some bonding time with their baby.
Don’t worry shipmates, we have the watch.
