Yesterday was a long day for us. We departed Sector Houston-Galveston at 0700 and some of us didn’t get home until after 0100 this morning. We where handed a lot of challenges but the professional and dedicated volunteers we had couldn’t be stopped. They over came 2 blown out tires, a dragging trailer brake, slinging grease from displaced grease cap, buying 8 new trailer tires (finding them in stock along the way was fun), changing locations for delivery and the bumpiest road in America (Hwy 90 in LA) to name a few. We would like to thank the the men and women Coasties in Houston, Galveston, Freeport, Port Arthur, Sabine, Lake Charles, Morgan City, the local communities, USO Houston, the CPOA Marianas Chapter and countless others that made this trip possible. We were able to deliver over 14 pallets of bottled water, countless boxes of diapers, wipes, non-perishable food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, paper products, pet food, clothes, tarps and more that we could go on and on. The recovery is only beginning for those affected by hurricane IDA. We were honored to do our very small part to help people get back on their feet. Please see additional post for pictures of yesterday’s adventure.

An update on our current operations with our relief efforts. We acquired our 3rd enclosed trailer to fill today along with a 40' trailer. We have purchased an additional 10 pallets of water. 2 trailers are almost full. Thank you to the outpouring support from coasties, the local community and and the USO. The USO is putting on a donation drive tomorrow from 9-12 at the the American Legion located across from Sector Houston. See our previous post for more information. We can't thank the community enough.

Join us in wishing BMCM Robert Gonzales Fair Winds and Following Seas in retirement. His leadership and mentor-ship will be missed. We hear his boat driving skills are a little rusty. Might be something he can work on in retirement. 😉

Congratulations on your retirement Chief Cappy. We wish you well and many lazy days relaxing chewing on toys to come.

Congratulations on your retirement Chief Cappy. We wish you well and many lazy days relaxing chewing on toys to come.

This week was bittersweet as K9 Cappy retired after 7 years of dedicated service. He was key in safeguarding our Ports and waterways along with citizens attending high profile events like the Super Bowl, Final Four, and marathons to name a few. Your Crew at MSST Houston wishes you the best in retirement Cappy!

Another successful USCGC Blackthorn Memorial Golf Tournament sponsored by the CPOA Lonestar Chapter in the books. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Special thanks to Cameron Steinmetz for setting everything up and Jason Jarrell and his team for cooking a delicious meal. We even helped out a turtle find it's way off the cart path.

Honoring The 100th Anniversary of The USCG CPO #commandchallengecoins
NEWS RELEASE For Immediate release: 01/15/2018 Coast Guard Warns Thousands of Retirees Will Not Be Paid During Government Shutdown As the Federal Government Shutdown enters its fourth week a group of veterans will too find itself victims and unaware how this shutdown will affect them: Coast Guard retirees. On 01Feb2018 checks that normally get distributed and direct deposited to over 50,000 Coast Guard veterans for their retirement and many more spouses that would normally receive their Survivors Death Benefits will not be getting paid, some of which live in the surrounding Houston area. The only way for the Coast Guard Active Duty, Reserves, Civilian, and retirees to get paid is if the Department of Homeland Security FY19 Appropriations Budget, a continuing resolution, or any alternative measure passes both chambers of Congress and is signed by President Trump. Why is the Department of Defense which includes the other four U.S. Branches of the Armed Forces and not the fifth branch of the U.S. Military? The Coast Guard is not part of the Department of Defense appropriation, instead falls under the Department of Homeland Security appropriation—one that has not yet been enacted into law for FY19. Federal Government retirees from other agencies that are included in the partial government shutdown, those agencies retirees will still receive their retirement pay because bills have been passed to protect them and their retirement pay from such government shutdowns. Coast Guard retirees will find out on 01Feb just how this government shutdown will affect them including this retired Boatswains Mate Chief having served 22 yrs with nearly 11 yrs of sea time . The shutdown, which began on December 22 was initially expected to affect all members of the Coast Guard beginning on the final paychecks of calendar year 2018 but saw a last-minute hail marry after a lot of time and effort in research and legal reviews were made. Today Coast Guard Active Duty saw $0.00 deposited into their mid-month paychecks and very soon a greater number of older veterans and fellow ‘Coasties’ that do not have the same access to resources and just as, if not more dependent on their pay, will be next in line and can have a devastating impact on their daily lives. They are unaware because the Coast Guard Pay and Personnel Command (PPC) is unable to handle it because the entire Retirement Assistance staff has been furloughed. In the Senate the Pay Our Coast Guard Act, introduced on January 4th, was assigned to the Senate Legislative Calendar; The Pay Our Coast Gard Parity Act of 2019 was introduced in the House and assigned to the Appropriations Committee and Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. It sits and awaits passage by legislation. ----------ENDS----------
