The Paratus Report, Episode 4

Episode 4 of the Coast Guard Paratus Report is now live! The Paratus Report is a workforce news program focused at keeping Coast Guard members informed of what’s happening throughout their Coast Guard. The episode will air monthly on the official Coast Guard YouTube channel, and a brief recap with additional information will be provided right here on Coast Guard All Hands.

Honoring our fallen, changing in the wake of tragedy

The service has established an enlisted diver rating, and soon will have the first rated enlisted divers and warrant officers with a dive specialty. Allowing these dedicated individuals to focus on diving as their primary duty, rather than as a collateral one, represents an unprecedented change in the wake of the tragedy that took the lives of two Coast Guard divers, and is perhaps the greatest way to honor the service and legacy of Lt. Hill and Petty Officer 2nd Class Duque.
