Today is National Women’s Equality Day!

In 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution officially granted women the right to vote. Take a moment to reflect on that historical event and think about how we can continue to balance the scales of equality today.

Happy National Aviation Day! Today we celebrate the birth of Orville Wright and his tremendous accomplishment as the first to fly a heavier-than-air powered aircraft in December of 1903. The Wright Flyer (pictured here) successfully flew about 200 feet in the hills of Kitty Hawk, NC. Without this feat, modern aviation would not be where it is today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COAST GUARD!!! 🎉

On this day 231 years ago, the Revenue Cutter Service was established to enforce the first tariff laws enacted by Congress. 106 years ago our service was given the name “Coast Guard” to better represent the diverse array of missions that we conduct in the maritime environment. At Air Station Houston, we use today to remember our roots as we continue to serve our country from the air.

Yesterday afternoon one of our aircrews conducted a MEDEVAC from a Tugboat 65 miles offshore. With the help of an HC-144 Ocean Sentry from Air Station Corpus Christi, the patient was hoisted into our MH-65E Dolphin helicopter and transported to higher medical care. Well done!

Attention all veterans! We at Alvin High School would like to celebrate and congratulate your hard work that you put toward our country to make it a safer place.

I run U.S. Military support group page, I am an Army brat and a former Air Force wife with a long history with the military and I am conducting a survey- is there any way you can send this survey to others or take it? It is completely private there is no way for me or anyone to know who has taken it, it is for data collection only for my dissertation. the link is https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/L8VJXQH Thank you so much for your time and support.
Haven't seen y'all practicing in the back yard lately. We truly enjoy watching y'all. It's great family entertainment! You're welcome to come and hang out as long as you like!! 54T northwest end of 08 Keep up the good work and keep safe!

This free app connects people in need with people, NGOs and gov that can help. It is also great for boater safety when help is needed from other boaters without Marine radios. We are seeing more and more boaters using it since it is free. It is called PubSafe and is free to download and use from either app store. https://tinyurl.com/yyzn47oc
Do you guys have a POC for this group? Someone who can get us in touch with chopper rescue for Beaumont. We have locations for urgent rescue, 3 code blues. Chopper access only
