Station Los Angeles/Long Beach Reservists embrace commandant’s guiding principles

BM3 Chriafisi-Boyd (Station Channel Islands), BM3 David Vela, and BM3 Dax Chacon (both of Station LA/LB), join forces to fine-tune the details of a textbook drifting search pattern.

On the southern tip of Los Angeles Harbor’s Terminal Island, after driving through two-mile sea of stacked containers and straight through the center of a federal correctional institution’s fence-lined campus, you will find Coast Guard Base Los Angeles/Long Beach. From the base, you will find scenic views of San Pedro, Los Angeles Harbor and the busy channel that borders the west side of Terminal Island. Among the Coast Guard units, you will find Station LA/LB. In July, Senior Chief Petty Officer Nicholas Bernice had an opportunity to spend a few days with the station’s 25 reservists during their two weeks of active duty training.
