From the Helm: Welcome to Coast Guard Pacific Northwest

People often forget facts and figures, but stories stay with us. Those stories happen everyday. They are punctuated by the harrowing search and rescue cases you see on the news, but there is so much more to your Coast Guard. With the Coast Guard Pacific Northwest blog we intend to provide a window into the larger issues, the day to day, the gamut of missions and the people who make it all happen here in the 13th District.
