>Seasons Greetings


As we quickly approach the Christmas and Holiday Season, I thank all of you who visit our blog.   I regularly get positive feedback on the blog telling me that it continues to be useful and interesting. 

When we started this blog, we weren’t sure how successful it was going to be or how much information we would be able to convey, or how hard it was going to be to maintain.  But our goal was to do our best and provide current, useful, and/or general information to our stakeholders. I have to admit, at times it hasn’t been easy and our blogging has been delayed by other operational commitments, but we strive to meet your expectations.  We hope that all of you continue to visit throughout the coming New Year.

The entire Fifth Coast Guard District Prevention staff and our operational units wish all of you a Merry Christmas, a joyful Holiday Season, and a happy New Year.
