Safe and effective weight loss

With the month of April fast approaching, many of us are likely becoming preoccupied with the semi-annual weigh-in requirement. Feedback from the field suggests that many members go to extremes to “make weight”. Excessive practices include fad diets, extreme workouts, and the use of quick weight loss products. These can be dangerous endeavors, and will likely not result in permanent weight loss. Read the full blog to learn about Coast Guard (CG) approved web-sites that will assist members in safe and effective weight management year-round.

The newest ‘Ancients’ – Introducing the Gold and Silver Ancient Tridents

Today the Coast Guard inducted the first Gold and Silver Ancients Tridents, Rear Adm. Linda L. Fagan and Master Chief R. Shane Hooker respectively. The tradition of naming a Coast Guard community’s “Ancient” dates back to 1966, when aviators created the Ancient Albatross, a title developed to recognize the longest serving pilot in the Coast Guard. The Gold and Silver Ancient Tridents are titles given to the officer and enlisted member who have served in the Marine Safety community the longest. The Marine Safety field operations include vessel and facility inspection, waterways management, pollution response and marine casualty investigations.
