First Coast News: At Sea on a Coast Guard Buoy Tender

Good article about the Cutter Maria Bray from First Coast News:  Do My Job: At Sea on a Coast Guard Buoy Tender here’s a snippet:

These Coast Guard sailors don’t leap from helicopters. They don’t typically pluck stranded swimmers from the sea. But their teamwork keeps our economy afloat.They maintain the traffic signals and road signs of the sea — more than 300 markers scattered across the First Coast. Ships of all kinds need those buoys to help them get underway every day.

Your neighborhood store gets stocked with stuff, your dinner plate gets filled with fish, and folks on First Coast ships defend our nation, because members of the Coast Guard like Daniel Foley say, “I’m proud to do my job.”
