    Hi! I was wondering if there is anywhere online for AIM photos. I have a child in the first session!
    Thanks!

    Go to Paul Duddy on Facebook. You will find plenty there. He has another page like Pduddy pics on Facebook also now. He photographs the Aimsters.

    Pduddy pics on FB. Paul is a volunteer that is able to post incredible photos of life at the USCGA. You'll be playing where's Waldo soon!

    I'll bet you'll spot your Aimster in more than a couple pics. Paul does a great job and it was more than I expected.

    It is amazing how difficult it is for me to recognize my own child!

    I've been following Pduddy pics on Facebook, plus the Coast Guard Academy Facebook page, and the USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 5-12 Long Beach, CA Facebook page, and have seen some great photos of AIM weeks 1 and 2, but none of week 3 anywhere so far. Does anyone know if there is any other link or place I could look for pictures for this week (AIM week 3)?

    From following Paul duddy it looks like he might be on vacation. If it helps any my son did week one last year and there were no pictures that week either. Sorry it stinks.

    Thank you Tmamon for answering and sorry you didn't have pics from your son's week either. Luck of the draw I suppose, and your commiseration made me feel better! :)

    Paul is back and I would expect to see some of the aimsters in the coming days.

    Thank you Alaskan - you were right! Pduddy posted a couple of pics of the Aim students today, plus the Coast Guard Academy put up a couple of videos this afternoon and I was able to find my son in one of those (very reassuring to catch that glimpse!). It looks like an amazing experience for the kids!

    AIM is a great program, looks like they had a good show with the rescue swimmer and Jayhawk. DS enjoyed AIM when he was there last summer. It galvanized USCGA as his #1 choice.
