    I am honored that my son will soon be attending this wonderful institution that produces such caring, compassionate, and humble young men and women. Every parent of a USCGA Cadet should be extremely proud of their child. I'm sure the parents of these cadets are!

    USCGA 2014, Proud Parent

    I met all of these gentlemen at the USCGA AIM 2009 Summer Program. They were great role models and exemplified the core values of the Coast Guard. I wouldn't expect any less from these fine future officers.
    Way to go Mr. Cinque, Mr. Salerno, and Mr. Valencia.

    What an uplifting story (wiping away tears)!!!! As of mom of three, I am so thankful there are people like this in our world. As a mom of a soon-to-be-cadet, I am so proud and honored that he will be in such great company at CGA!

    Great job guys!!!

    These young men are indeed a credit to the uniform they wear. They also are a credit to the country they serve, which is the United States of America. The greatest country in the world. They are among the best and brightest in this country.

    God Bless those Cadets, Thank you

    These boys remind me of 19-year-old Seaman Apprentice William R. Flores who I was just reading about in, "Character In Action" (p. 9-10) yesterday. Coasties really are a breed of their own, and we are so honored to join the family. Thanks for posting Luigi, and good job boys! -officer

    Luigi,

    AWESOME!!!

    THANK YOU for sharing this!!!

    We so seldom hear about the GOOD that cadets/midshipmen do; and they do it quite often, that it's really nice to see it at least here!!!

    Bravo Zulu to our Coasties! Not even "in the fleet" and they're already putting out to help others!
