#Searchandrescue (SAR) is one of the #CoastGuard's oldest missions. Warding off the loss of life, personal injury, and property damage by helping boaters in distress has always been a top Coast Guard priority. Coast Guard SAR response involves multi-mission stations, cutters, aircraft, and boats linked by communications networks. #11Missions

Anytime you’re getting underway the Coast Guard highly recommends you file a float plan on your trip. A great way to file a plan is through using the Coast Guard App. In the app, it even describes what a float plan is, walks you step by step on filing the plan and you can even add a picture of your vessel with the float plan. Float plans can help rescue crews know where to begin their search as well as knowing the area(s) you might be transiting. Also remember that even though cell phones are good communication tools having a VHF-FM radio aboard your vessel is even better because the Coast Guard is constantly monitoring VHF-FM channel 16.

Chaplains bring a sense of calm in troubled times, whether they are just a listening ear or leading a worship service or even talking about the latest sports event, they are there to support and serve the service members in their care.

More imagery from the Coast Guard Cutter Willow&#39;s involvement in the medevac case Thursday.

The Coast Guard medevaced a fisherman, who reportedly suffered from a respiratory issue Thursday, approximately 60 miles east of Atlantic City, New Jersey. Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay’s command center were notified by crewmembers of the fishing vessel Illusion of the ailing crewmember at approximately 6 a.m. The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Willow, a 225-foot seagoing buoy tender homeported in North Charleston, South Carolina, was directed by Sector Delaware Bay watchstanders to the Illusion and took the man aboard in preparation for Coast Guard aircrews. An MH-65 Dolphin rescue helicopter crew from Coast Guard Station Atlantic City hoisted the man aboard their helicopter from the Willow and brought him to Atlanticare Regional Medical facility in Pomona, New Jersey. “Any time people need help in a marine environment, it’s best to let us know as soon as possible,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Charles Osenbach, a watchstander at Sector Delaware Bay. “Getting to people takes time and being on the water automatically makes a rescue more complicated. This crew did the right thing by reaching out to us when there was an increased medical concern.”

Did you know that Chaplains not only lead worship services but also were teachers of multiple topics, such as celestial navigation?

Today is throwback Thursday and we are going to look at a chaplain from the Vietnam War. Father Vincent R. Capodanno, nicknamed "the Grunt Padre," and was assigned to Vietnam in 1966, where Capodanno served with the First Marine Division. On September 4, 1967, around 500 U.S. Marines were battling 2,500 North Vietnamese in the Que Son Valley. Capodanno ventured onto the battlefield to retrieve the wounded and give Last Rites. He was shot in the right hand, but refused evacuation. Instead, a corpsman wrapped up his shattered hand. On another foray, his left arm was shredded by a mortar blast. Yet he still refused to leave the battlefield. Capodanno ventured ahead to give Last Rites and saw a Marine shot in the leg who couldn&#39;t move. The chaplain used his own body to shield the wounded man and was fatally shot. Capodanno was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor among a list of other medals.

Re-enlistments are often done in a grand fashion, but Petty Officer 2nd Class Derick Arneberg of the Coast Guard Maritime Law Enforcement Academy pulled out all the stops! At the South Carolina Aquarium, where Arneberg volunteers, he swore in for another four years of service. It’s a little hard to hear in 385 thousand gallons of water! Share your re-enlistment stories below! Editor’s Note: None of the marine life was sworn in.

Today we’ll get an overview of the four pillars of the Chaplain Corps. Those four pillars are to Provide, Facilitate, Care & Advise, in which chaplains use to serve their military members and their families. Chaplains not only provide and facilitate religious services, but they provide and faciliate multiple things for military members and their families like marriage enrichment seminars, singles events, community service events among other things. Chaplains also advise commands they are assigned to on morale issues, religious issues and overall how service members are doing. Religious affiliation aside, chaplains do all these things because they care. They care about the members they serve with. They care about their families as well.
