We are excited to share that as of June 4th, starting with company Oscar-200 Cape May will begin holding in-person graduation ceremonies again! Recruits will be allowed up to three guests! We are getting there!

****Update*** ~ Graduation & Guests

Training Center Cape May Community and Families,

I am happy to announce that as a result of our vaccine and mitigation efforts recruit graduation ceremonies will be re-opened to guests as recruits will be permitted to invite 3 people to attend their graduation ceremony. Recruits will confirm their guests’ attendance on graduation week.

By DHS direction, all personnel, regardless of vaccination status are required to wear masks in Training Center Cape May buildings until further notice. Additional updates will be made when they become available.

Our main gate will open to authorized guests at 8:15 a.m. Upon arriving at the front gate, all guests must present a valid form of state or federal identification in order to gain access to the training center. All drivers must possess a valid driver’s license.

At this time, the on-base family breakfast will be held at the Harborview at 8:30 a.m. at a cost of $7 per person.

Fi****ms, weapons, and illicit controlled substances, including ma*****na, are not permitted on base. Do not have them in your vehicle when you approach the front gate to enter the base.

Graduation is a formal military ceremony and will begin promptly at 11 a.m. in the gymnasium or on the parade field, as weather permits. The ceremony will last for about 45 minutes. After the ceremony is concluded, recruits are free to depart. If you are unable to attend the ceremony, your recruit will be provided travel arrangements to execute their orders for authorized leave and reporting to their first units.

Our Exchange will be open to visitors from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for authorized guests and graduates to purchase Coast Guard items or by visiting www.shopcgx.com.

Please continue to check our official FORCECOM webpage and this social media page for updated information, as they are the only official sources of information from the Training Center:

https://www.forcecom.uscg.mil/Our-Organization/FORCECOM-UNITS/TraCen-Cape-May/Visitor-Services/Graduation/

We are extremely excited to welcome our families back to Cape May for graduation ceremonies. I wish you safe travels and look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely,

CAPT Kathy Felger
Commanding Officer
Training Center Cape May

World.Record.Breakers.

A team of 8 Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod Aviation Survival Technicians, or rescue swimmers, set out to beat the Guinness World Records today climbing the height of Mt. Everest (29,028ft.) for time on the versa climber.

The prior record holders were the Royal Air Force firefighters with a time of 1:56:08 on April 27, 2004.

Almost exactly 17 years later, the crew beat it at 1:26:20!

Bravo Zulu!

#DidYouKnow Richard Etheridge was the first African-American station keeper in Revenue Cutter Service (now known as the U.S. Coast Guard) history? After serving in the Civil War, Etheridge joined the Revenue Cutter Service and quickly gained the respect of his superiors and colleagues. He was appointed station keeper of the Pea Island Life-Saving Station in 1880 where he managed an all-black crew that became one of the best in the country. In 1896, this Pea Island crew performed the Gold Life-Saving Medal rescue of survivors from the wrecked schooner E.S. Newman. In 2012, the #USCG Cutter Richard Etheridge (WPC-1102) was commissioned in his honor. #BlackHistoryMonth #SemperParatus #MotivationMonday

While the Packers didn't quite make it to the big game this year (so close!), still a cool piece of NFL and Coast Guard history to read up on this Super Bowl Sunday!

#SundayReading 'Offense on Defense': Football legend was a Coast Guard hero

When Vince Lombardi became head coach of the Green Bay Packers in the 1950s, his first big move was to sign Coast Guard hero Emlen Tunnell. It was a smart move - Tunnell earned the nickname "Mr. Defense," and became the first African American inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Some fun facts about our great service

While not its official birthday, #onthisday in 1915, the modern U.S. Coast Guard was created with the Coast Guard Act, merging the U.S. Life Saving Service and the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service (established August 4, 1790, which is the official birthday of the Coast Guard) per 14 U.S.C. § 1 which states: "The Coast Guard as established January 28, 1915, shall be a military service and a branch of the armed forces of the United States at all times." #ThisDayInHistory #OTD #SemperParatus #AlwaysPrepared
