    Vince is a member of our flotilla. He makes a delicious cheese cake! We’re so proud that he could represent us on the CGC Diligence. I’m sure the Coast Guardsmen were impressed by Vince’s enthusiasm to participate in this activity. Bravo Zulu, Vince!!

    I can relate to Vince’s experience and enthusiasm. I have been working with the FS’S aboard the CGC Mackinaw WLLB30. It has become the most satisfying experience I have had in the Auxillary.
