Although technically not employed by the #USCG , we want you to meet Nick Chaleunphone, a @USCGAux  member. She's been part of the Coast Guard family since 2005. Nick happens to be deaf in one ear and has been since birth. #NationalDisabilitiesEmploymentAwarenessMonth 

Protecting living marine resources is one of the 11 statutory missions of the #USCG . Station Fort Lauderdale crews worked alongside Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, Inc. to release these precious animals into their natural habitat. #SaveTheTurtles  🐢

A joint active duty and @USCGAux  crew (Team Alpha) conducted post storm port assessments in the Intracoastal Waterway and Vermillion Bay documenting and reporting damaged and missing aids to navigation and potential pollution in areas caused by #HurricaneDelta . #USCGDelta 

As we transition into colder weather, our crews must ensure their cold weather gear is up to par. This includes our most senior crew members, too. CPO Ballanger of Station Hatteras Inlet tested his dry suit for leaks while his pup Bo joined him for a morning swim.

As the U.S. Federal General Election nears, keep in mind some of the seats and offices you can expect to see on your 2020 ballot. Contact your local election officials with state specific questions;

This rendition of our service song will get you off your feet! The #USCG  Band's new Jazz Nonet still needs a name. Have any ideas?

Oh, deer! 🦌 A crew from #USCG  Station Ketchikan rescued a deer in Clarence Strait, Alaska. The deer swam to the boat and was later released at Knudson Cove.
