Twas the night before Christmas and all through each state,
Coast Guard families were starting to celebrate.
Just then from the White House came an urgent call,
A crisis had arisen that would affect one and all.
In fact the U.S. State Department was frantic,
For Santa Claus had just landed in the Atlantic!
It was foggy as ever; Rudolph had made a blunder.
Santa, sleigh, and eight reindeer were going under.
Though the stockings were hung by the chimneys with care.
Poor Santa gurgled, “I’ll never get there.”
When what to his wondering eye should appear;
But some Coast Guard Cutters with their rescue gear!
The officers and crew were so lively and quick;
Sure was a lucky break for good ole Saint Nick.
With a nod from the Captain, they went right to work.
Rudolph was embarrassed, he felt like a jerk.
Poor Santa was soggy, but as anyone could see,
He was very grateful to the U.S.C.G!
And we heard him exclaim as they towed him from sight,
“If it weren’t for age and weight, I’d enlist Tonight!”

We will be thinking about ALL our military men and women who are standing the watch this holiday season.

Say farewell to the Francis Scott Key Buoy until next summer.

The specially designed buoy, which marks the spot where Francis Scott Key witnessed the bombardment of Fort McHenry and inspired him to write the 'Star Spangled Banner,' is being removed by the crew of the Cutter James Rankin as they prepare the Chesapeake Bay for the winter season.

A free vessel safety check

We have another FREE stocking stuffer for you. Your local Coast Guard Auxiliary and U.S. Power Squadron members round out this wish list with their free vessel safety checks (VSC). A VSC is an excellent way to assure your boater’s vessel has the necessary equipment to be safe on the water and could one day save their life. The free VSC is performed at your boat – whether in a slip, at the launch ramp, or in your driveway – by a certified vessel examiner, at a mutually convenient time. There is no charge, and no consequences if you don’t pass.

Enrollment in a boating safety course

Enrolling your loved one in a boating safety course is one of the best gifts to give, because, as the saying goes…knowledge is power. Your favorite boater will learn basic boat handling principles, required and recommended safety equipment, navigational rules and how to deal with boating emergencies. Statistics show that boaters who have taken a boating safety course are far less likely to be involved in a boating accident or fatality. Courses are offered throughout the year with many different pricing options. Some have a nominal fee, and there are even courses available for free, perfect for those on a tight budget during the holiday season.

A VHF marine radio

In this day and age most when nearly everyone has a cell phone, we still recommend boaters also carry a VHF-FM marine radio. While your boater may get lucky and have cell phone coverage in some areas, not all areas on the water can get reception. The Coast Guard and other response agencies monitor radio frequencies 24 hours a day and can hear your boater’s call for help. Does your favorite boater have an old radio? All new models are equipped with a Digital Select Calling capability. These radios will automatically send out a distress signal with the touch of a button. When properly registered and connected to a GPS unit, these radios automatically provide exact position information and can even provide responders with the nature of the emergency. The holidays are a great time for upgrades!

A nautical chart

The winter is the perfect time of the year for your boater to sit back with a glass of egg nog and study the local waterways on an updated nautical chart. Charts keep boaters familiar with the areas they navigate, and also keeps them informed on safe water depths. Charts also come in handy if your boater's Marine GPS breaks or loses power.

A vessel fire extinguisher

We recommend having a fire extinguisher on your boat. Consider locations where the extinguisher can be reached easily; for example, at or near the steering station or in the galley or engine room, but away from locations where a fire may likely start. Be sure to have the correct fire extinguisher for your vessel size and type.

A properly stocked first aid kit

A first aid kit may not be at the top of your holiday shopping list, but it’s an extremely important item that could be the difference in a life or death situation. This gift requires a little more attention as you will need to account for your mariners boating activities. Things to take into consideration are how long it will take for medical assistance to arrive, the activities you participate in and the amount of crew onboard. This gift may need to be wrapped twice as it’s important to keep your kit in a watertight seal or container.

An emergency position indicating radio beacon

An EPIRB can assist the Coast Guard and other rescue personnel find your boater in the event of an emergency. A properly registered beacon alerts rescuers that your boat may be in distress and can provide them with important information such as the boat’s last known location and a description of the vessel.

The message: "Air Raid, Pearl Harbor. This is no drill" came at 0755 on December 7, 1941, as Japanese warplanes swept overhead in an attack on the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet. At the time, USCGC Taney was moored alongside Pier 6 in Honolulu harbor.

Taney immediately took to her guns. During the course of the attack, Taney fired at all Japanese aircraft within range, and was credited with fighting off five enemy aircraft with intent on destroying the Honolulu Power Plant.

Today, Coast Guard Sector Baltimore is honored to have Taney moored at Pier 5 in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. She is the last surviving warship of the attack.

On this 74th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, let us salute the men and women who lost their lives, while honoring the survivors who are still with us. Their courage and heroism continue to remain an inspiration to our nation!
