WE AGAIN WELCOME OUR VISITORS FROM MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA HERE TO EXPLORE THEIR CITY'S NAVIGABILITY.
AT 0800 CST, AS IS OUR CUSTOM, WE HELD MORNING COLORS. THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WAS PRESENTED BY CARRIE UNDERWOOD. THE LINK FOR THE RECORDED PERFORMANCE IS BELOW THE FLAG.
As the news day opened Chinese "Maritime Surveillance Ships" (Coast Guard) were steaming for the islands disputed between China, Japan, and Taiwan. It appears that China will respond with its own Coast Guard, putting a law enforcement aura on the dispute. As two Coast Guards square off, we thought it an interesting time to offer an "Og reblog", Og's thoughts on why U.S. Coast Guard cooks are required to have two working trigger fingers first posted about seven months ago. If you have not read it before it will give you a new appreciation for what Coast Guard service is all about an dhow it differs from naval service. In this age of illegal migrants, drug cartels , piracy,and terrorism Coast Guard service is fast becoming one of the .most relevant military services a young person may join, not just in the United States but around the world Coast Guards are busier, better funded, better equipped, and more often in harm's way than ever before. As Og demonstrates there really is a reason why U.S. Coast Guard Cooks need two trigger fingers.
Scroll down to read the latest installment on your navigability issues. In fact anyone involved in shipping should get a kick out today's look at water way transportation and the movement of "out sized" cargo.
THE NEWS SERVICE IS UP AND RUNNING. ALL SPECIAL PAGES ARE GOOD TO GO.
LETS GET INTO THE MARITIME WORLD AND SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING.
