    Future Coasties and Service Men and Women,


    This may be a little specific to the Coast Guard.


    Being a small service, there are many opportunities to work closely with Coasties from all over. Many of these chances are fun. I've been to more than one school, and many times I will run into people I've known from other areas.

    Every year there is a ice hockey tournament called the Commandant's Cup. This year, just before I went on my last patrol, I participated, along with two members from my unit. We were on the Puddle Pirates.

    Attached is the website link with the pictures. All participants were 100% Coast Guard. Some civilian employees, active duty, reserve, and cadets.

    We had a great time, and I will definately be going again next year.

    If you look, I was #27 on the Puddle Pirates. I'm also on the far right on the bench pictures. We are the team with the darker blue jerseys (base jerseys for the Nashville Predators).


    Anyway....enjoy. http://www.oceansedgewebdesign.com/comdtscup/index.html

    Lost in the first round of the second day. We were playing the eventual Champs, but it was fun.

    There were some injuries, one guy from a game just before our tore his ACL, and in our game a guy sliced open his hand and need some stitches.

    Good time though, injuries happen, we had a good time, although I do feel bad for the ACL guy, especially because it will affect his work too.
