Seaman Noah Collom is this week'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.
"From loading the deck to punching piles that mark the Houston Ship Channel, Collom is right there learning each position he prepares to qualify in," said Senior Chief Petty Officer Henry Myers, the officer in charge of Clamp.
