Today we had the privilege of promoting Marquiche Hughes from Petty Officer First Class to Lieutenant Junior Grade in the U.S. Coast Guard aboard the Battleship North Carolina. LTJG Hughes spoke of gratitude for those who came before him and his brother, LT Hughes, in the service and his optimism that we'll continue to increase representation of black Americans in our commissioned officer corps. #Welcome to the wardroom, Marquiche!

Headed on the water? Everyone needs a #lifejacket. #safeboating

A life jacket is the single most important piece of equipment on your boat. More than two-thirds of all boating fatalities are drowning incidents. Unfortunately, 90% of these fatalities could have been avoided with the use of a life jacket. So buy one for your loved one, it could save their life. Whether it’s for your children or even your dogs, it’s a great addition

Our friends on the West Coast helped save Santa, but this #searchandrescue case could have ended differently if Santa didn't have the proper safety and communications equipment. Don't forget your lifejackets, cold weather gear, VHF radios and your registered EPIRBs!

Everyday, we are proud to serve our local & great communities of South West Oregon. This weekend we were honored to assist with a Search & Rescue of a well known visitor to us all - Santa Claus! Dont stress - Christmas is safe!

A statement from Capt. Matt Baer, Commander of Sector North Carolina, "This morning, a fire took place at a commercial residential complex in Buxton, North Carolina where several active duty Coast Guard members live.

With great sadness, I have confirmed that the family of one of our active duty members is currently unaccounted for. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers while we investigate this incident with local authorities.

The Coast Guard is a small organization. This tragic incident impacts not only this family, crew and station, but various members, families and units throughout the Coast Guard.

In addition to the individuals currently unaccounted for, three other Coast Guard members and their families were displaced by the fire. They are currently in a safe shelter location.

Members trained in critical incident stress management are currently enroute to support those impacted by this tragedy. We are also working with the Coast Guard Foundation and other organizations to further support our members and families during this difficult time."

All available boats... #neverforget

He was supposed to be in the Twin Towers on 9/11. Instead, LT Michael Day helped coordinate the largest maritime evacuation in human history. After the World Trade Center collapsed, more than 500,000 people fled lower Manhattan, launching a rescue effort that involved virtually every part of the tightknit maritime community in New York. Now, CAPT Day is serving on my team. His actions, and the actions of all first responders, ensure we will never forget.

#HBD AMVER! The Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue System has been used to save lives on the high seas for 62 years.

Was anyone born on July 18, 1958? If so, you share a birthday with the Automated Mutual Assistance Vessel Rescue System, or "AMVER."

It is a voluntary, computer-based global ship reporting system used world wide to arrange for assistance to persons in distress at sea.

Merchant ship owners and managers register their vessels which can then be called upon to assist others nearby.

For more information on how commercial vessels can participate, view the @amveruscg fact sheet at:https://www.amver.com/Content/Docs/Facts/UscgCgMixAmverFactSheet.pdf
