The Coast Guard Western Rivers Flood Punt Team from Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Huntington has been activated to assist the West Virginia State Emergency Operation Center in response to flooding along the Kanawha River in West Virginia.

The Western Rivers Flood Punt Team has been busy, transporting water to 13 households, as well as transporting 20 people from isolated high points to a safer location.

The crews have also responded to 3 separate 911 calls for medical emergencies, where the crew transported the subjects while local EMS personnel on board provided medical assistance.

The Western Rivers Flood Punt Team was also able to clear a fallen tree that would have been a hazard to a local roadway when the water levels recede.

#HappyBirthday to lighthouse keeper Idawalley Zorada Lewis, born #OnThisDay in 1842. Lewis grew up in Newport, Rhode Island and her father was a captain. He became the first keeper of Lime Rock, Rhode Island but soon his health declined. As the oldest child, Lewis took care of her sick father, the lighthouse, and her siblings. Each morning she rowed her siblings from the small island where the lighthouse sat to the mainland so they could attend school. Lewis also filled the lamp in the lighthouse with oil every night at sundown and again at midnight to ensure no boats were in danger. At 16, Lewis performed her first rescue; she saved four boys after their boat capsized. After Lewis's father died she applied to be the official keeper and in 1879 was appointed. She would hold the position until her death. During her 39 years of working at Lime Rock Lighthouse Station, Lewis is credited with saving 18 lives. The last rescue was when Lewis was 63 years old. For her work she was awarded the Gold Lifesaving Medal by the U.S. Coast Guard. (Photo Credit: The Mariners’ Museum Newport News, VA) #womenshistory

He single-handedly pulled four fisherman more than 250 yards in 57-degree water from their life raft to shore. Each of the fishermen were the same size or bigger than the 6-foot, 175-pound #USCG rescue swimmer.

This isn't a math equation, but a real life rescue for which Petty Officer 2nd Class Darren Harrity was just awarded the Coast Guard Medal for performing.

This year at the CPOA/CGEA Convention, we had the distinct honor of having the author of "Guardian of Guadalcanal," Gary Williams, present his research. His passion and enthusiasm for Douglas Monroe's story was impactful. He shared information that we, as Coast Guardsmen, had never even heard before about our service's hero and Medal of Honor recipient. Petty Officer Monroe's personal story, alone, is wonderful. All is shared in this book. It is amazing and a highly recommended read! We haven't been able to put it down! It is available on Amazon. Share shamelessly!
