A Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel owned by Scott Handschuch and coxswained by Tom Evans, with Sandy Hook, New Jersey crew, Marcus Witkowski, Stephen Peters, Richard Flinn and James Geannakakes, serves as a public affairs boat as the retired Space Shuttle Enterprise, transits New York Harbor. “We picked up the media in lower Manhattan and tracked the shuttle from the Statue of Liberty to the Intrepid at midtown Manhattan,” said Handschuch. “The Enterprise is a beautiful part of history. It will make a great centerpiece for the Intrepid Air & Space Museum.” The Coast Guard and Auxiliary worked closely with its port partners to ensure the Enterprise reached its new home at the museum safely.

    The Mag. is usually very good with useful info. which our Div. (43) in 9W uses for our New Member Academy Course. However, attention to detail (pictures shown) needs to be improved or photoshopped. The 2015 Annual had several uniform problems. Pg. 13 upper left pic. no hat on the person in the back. Pg. 30 hat on in the building. Pg. 35 isn’t the zipper to be all the way to the neck line? Pg. 39 no cover (Hat) while outside AND the “T” shirt is either faded or the wrong color. With the GOLD sides attention on proper uniform and the wearing of same. I believe this pub. can do much better. Please forward this to the proper people. Thank You!
