US Coast Guard D17 reports -

Late Monday night, a Coast Guard MH-60T Jayhawk helicopter air crew from Coast Guard Air Station Sitka crashed on Read Island, Alaska, during an active search and rescue mission. All crew are alive and are being treated for injuries. Local government agencies from Petersburg along with a second Coast Guard air crew from Air Station Sitka responded and arrived on scene to provide medical care.

The initial search and rescue case was taken over by U.S. Coast Guard Cutters Elderberry and Douglas Denman.
This is really close to us on an outlying island. Hope everyone is doing ok ! Our CG is the best !

Thoughts are with all of them. No day doing their job is without personal risk. More American citizens should know and recognize this. And be appreciative.
