2018 Promotional Video for the Coast Guard Auxiliary

Sunday, August 26, 2018

This video could not have been completed without the support and help from Commodore Larry King, Commodore Dave McCandless, the Coast Guard active duty and Auxiliarists of Coast Guard District Eight (Coastal Region), and the families of all Auxiliarists that participated. The Public Affairs Directorate truly provided a herculean effort into filming, editing, and producing this video to ensure that the Coast Guard Auxiliary story is told. Please share our story and help make it part of your own.

    I have not found this on DVIDS. Where can we find it for download? I’d love to use it at our PA booth.

  2. Thea Narkiewicz says:

    We are working on getting the video on the GoogleDrive available in MP4 and MOV format for both MAC and PC. The link to the downloadable content will be released on the Public Affairs website and all social media outlets. Thanks for responding and continuing your support in the Public Affairs program!

Thanks to Coast Guard Station Monterey for hosting the memorial, the Coast Guard Auxiliary for the Color Guard, and Major Jimmy Ryan, USA and Mr. Bob Johannsen for their playing of the National Anthem and TAPS on their trum 40 pets. Most of all, THANK YOU to those of you we remembered today for your courage and sacrifice.
