The fifth America Armed Forces Branch

Did you know that besides the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines that the Coast Guard is one of our armed forces?

They are an important part of Gloucester. Currently, we have the USCG Grand Isle calling Gloucester her home port.

These are definitely some of our unsung hero's and I applaud the work they do as it is mostly under such difficult circumstances. A beautiful picture Steve, they are always so sharp and well composed.
