#MyCG Coast Guard honored with DHS's first Outstanding Unit Award

In one of his final actions while in office, the former Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf established the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Outstanding Unit Award and presented the new award to the United States Coast Guard on Jan. 11.

The new DHS Outstanding Unit Award is a Department-level award, presented by the DHS secretary, similar to those presented by the secretaries of Defense and Transportation. The award recognizes units whose meritorious actions and operational impact distinguish them above the level of service unit commendation, in our case the Coast Guard Unit Commendation.

The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary ⚓️ wishes everybody a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

Even in this difficult year, we are appreciative of many things. Thankful for our incredible members, thankful for the opportunity to serve the boating public, and thankful for our friends, family, and fellowship. We are particularly thankful for those standing the watch today and everyday to keep us safe — our active-duty military, law enforcement and first responders. Our thoughts are also with the families separated from their loved ones today.

Please Wear It

Using the right knot is critical to making sure your vessel is secure so it doesn’t drift away. Many people drown every year trying to retrieve their boat, so please wear a life jacket when you’re retrieving anything in the water. #LifeJacketsWornNobodyMourns

BRAVO ZULU to the SPARS who served, and to all women who have served or currently serving TEAM Coast Guard! ⚓

Operation Dry Water

Emergency Communication Devices are your first line of defense in an emergency as they alert authorities you are in need. The devices can be installed on your boat including a VHF Radio, Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) and Satellite Phones, or these devices can be worn on your person, like a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB). #ODW21

Our spunky and devoted #CoastGuard Lady Lois Bouton is getting ready to transition to Assisted Living shortly. She has graciously donated some of her memorabilia to the Coast Guard Museum amongst other people and units.

Once she gets a new address she will let us know, but you can continue to write to her current address. 📝

Huge THANK YOU to the U.S. Coast Guard Sector Lower Mississippi River and Sallisaw crews who helped Lois get situated.

Operation Dry Water

Just like driving under the influence (DUI), it is illegal to drink and operate a boat in all 50 states, with each state enforcing their own unique penalties for those caught boating under the influence. These include large fines, possible jail time, and a potential effect on your driver’s license. #ODW21

Happy 100th birthday to Ret. #CoastGuard Captain Joseph Gregory Victor.

A HUGE thank you to CMC Orlando and members of U.S. Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville, Lee County Sheriff's Office and multiple other agencies, family, friends and Veterans who helped celebrate Mr. Victor’s special occasion.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Mr, Victor joined the Army Air Corps cadet program one week after turning 21 years young.

After only one year in the program he was sent to Bombardier school where he graduated as a 2nd lieutenant. In 1948, the Army Air Corps became the Air Force.
During his WWII duties, Mr. Victor was sent on 55 bombing missions where he proudly severed and fought for our country.

After attending two war colleges, he transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard where he retired as a Captain after 33 years of service.

Happy Birthday and thank you for your service, Captain Victor!

Happy National Radio Day!

National Radio Day recognizes the great invention of the radio. Maritime radio communications have been an essential part of Coast Guard operations for decades and has helped shape the history of the Service. From radio beacons that once transmitted from lighthouses and lightships to the worldwide reach of LORAN and the earliest shipboard radios to today's SATCOM and Rescue 21, the broad array of radio systems utilized by the Coast Guard is almost too numerous to list.
