With holidays fast approaching, many Coast Guard service members will be carving turkeys, shopping for holiday gifts, visiting family and…

Like other military members, Coast Guard Academy cadets are often far away from their family during their intense four-year academic journey. Some cadets are even from outside of the U.S. This is why the camaraderie is strong between cadets, and why the families that surround the Academy are so important.
