Looks like a running theme with the crew of the Alder - training, training, training! Must mean ATON season is around the corner or something. Keep up the hard work! #Duluth #USCG #CG227 #GreatLakes #Training

On this day: 1848-Congress appropriated $10,000 for life saving stations and apparatus between Sandy Hook and Egg Harbor; the first funds to be expended under supervision of Revenue Cutter Service. $5000 appropriated in 1847 for saving life from shore was turned over to Collector of Customs at Boston to acquire boathouses and equipment on Cape Cod for Massachusetts Human Society. #OTD #RevenueCutterService #USCG #USLSS #CG277

As the Coast Guard, we're there to help people - on or off the water. Yesterday, crew members from Station and Aids to Navigation Team Saginaw River volunteered their time with Habitat for Humanity. Great job crew! #SemperParatus #volunteer #HabitatForHumanity #USCG

For #NationalLighthouseDay today, FN Gonzalez, BM2 Campomizzi, and BMC Heitzer participated in a flag raising ceremony at Presque Isle Lighthouse. The flagpole was donated by Sally Kohler and is a major step in the renovation efforts to restore the lighthouse to its original 1870s layout and condition. #USCG #GreatLakes #LakeErie
