This might not be a story that you have heard before, but Coast Guard chaplains were at Ground Zero for 40 days following the attacks of September 11th. Chaplains from around the Coast Guard went to New York to support not only the influx of Coast Guard personnel who were aiding with the response and security, but also other local emergency workers as well as the victims’ families. This is the Chaplain of the Coast Guard’s remembrance of 9/11 and the days following, and the assistance that the Coast Guard Chaplains provided to those that needed it.
