Take Action: Alcohol Awareness Month – Think before you drink

April is Alcohol Awareness Month, designed to increase command awareness and understanding, reduce stigma, and encourage people to focus on alcohol-related issues. The effects of alcohol misuse and abuse continue to be significant for the Coast Guard and have an impact on our ability to execute our missions. It’s your duty to protect your shipmates if they’re at risk of hurting themselves or someone else. Intervening early and at low levels, such as by asking an intoxicated member if he/she has a plan for transportation home or ensuring he/she is not left alone, makes it less likely that the situation will escalate. In other words, taking action early should curtail or put an end to the dangerous situation, thus preventing an alcohol incident.

Dialogue with the MCPOCG: TRICARE and you

The nation asks a lot of the Coast Guard, and in turn, your Coast Guard asks a lot of you. And, there are things that an organization owes its members if it’s going to ask so much from them: a safe and secure environment to work in; the resources to get the job done; the freedom to pursue individual goals; and a suite of entitlements to include competitive pay and access to adequate healthcare. Based on the vast variety of each individual’s or each family’s medical needs, arranging healthcare can be a complicated endeavor.
