Responding to the Navy Yard shooting

I fully recognize that this recent incident might increase stress levels within our workforce and I ask each of you to continue to look after each other in caring and compassionate ways. If you sense a concern with yourself or others, I encourage you to seek appropriate help through our work-life programs (1-800-855-CGSUPRT and www.cgsuprt.com) or the Chaplain network.

In the community: The Coast Guard coloring book

If you’ve ever hosted an elementary school group on a unit tour or visited a third-grade classroom, you probably know the challenge of keeping kids engaged. The under-12 set might “ooh and ahh” over a shiny helicopter or uniform bling, but they aren’t going to sit still for a PowerPoint deck to learn about the missions of the Coast Guard. Coast Guard Community Relations is happy to offer you a solution. A new Coast Guard coloring book is now available.
