    Thanks for the link LITS.

    I love the CG, and I think that the AVG person doesn't get how much they risk their lives day in and day out.

    That video captured it all, and I will bet my life that for the family members left behind it made them smile knowing every CG member feels their pain, but also knowing the loved one they lost played an important role in this world.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Luigi, thanks for that link too.

    I know this may come off wrong, but a week ago I asked if there was a ceremony and it got lost in the mix of that thread, I am happy to see there is something for the families.

    I.E. happy is not the right word in this scenario, but I think you get what I mean.

    Off topic, can you tell me what was next to the helo on the tarmac?

    Makes sense because that would most likely the only boat they could get on a tarmac.

    Thanks for the info.

    One of my very best friends in the world is a CG Senior Chief. Currently stationed at Port Angeles, WA. The CG is very unappreciated for all that they do, all they sacrifice, the daily guarding of our coasts, and for the lives they save. Rest in Peace...
