Seaman Noah Collom is this week&#39;s Heartland Coastie of the Week! Collom, a 19-year-old just two months out of basic training, recently reported aboard the 54-year-old Coast Guard Cutter Clamp! Reporting aboard, Collom quickly picked up the watchstander break-in routine and is on his way to be qualified as in-port officer of the day and underway watchstander. His enthusiastic presence is apparent during his work on deck.

The Coast Guard Cutter Dauntless hosted a ceremony to honor her 50 years of service today in Galveston, Texas. The Dauntless and her crew have had many history-making missions from becoming the first cutter to seize one million pounds of marijuana to serving as one of the on-scene commanders in response to the space shuttle Challenger disaster to rescuing 578 migrants from an overloaded freighter, the largest number of migrants rescued from a single vessel in Coast Guard history! The Dauntless will be continuing her proud legacy in her new homeport of Pensacola, Florida after almost 25 years in Galveston.
