Fallen Guardians Honored with Wreath Laying – video

On Wednesday, the Coast Guard held a traditional wreath laying ceremony for Guardians lost at sea in honor of the crew of Rescue 1705.

While we aren’t sure who produced this video, the link to it from the The Coast Guard Compass states that it is “Coast Guard photos and video”, and the information isn’t on YouTube.

If you know the Cutter involved, or the creator of the video, we would like to give them credit for a very moving video.

    My condolences to the families of the last air crews of both the CG and Marine Corp airships.

    As a former member of the Coast Guard–I grieve at the loss of these fine people.

    May they all rest in peace.

    I do hope that someone can find the names of those responsible for the production of this moving video. They deserve kudos for a job well done as well.

    To our lost Guardians and Marine Corp crews:

    God Bless the men and women lost in this tragedy.

    All of us who served in the Coast Guard understand their dedication to what they did – without regard for the potential cost.

    God Bless their families and give them strength to move one when the right time comes.

    I do believe it is the USCGC MIDGETT that is the Cutter involved in the laying of the wreath video. It showed the CO speaking and it looks like Captain Miller, the Co of the MIDGETT.

    I was stationed on the Midgett. FS1 that is Captian Miller speaking and it was an honor to be able to help lay the wreaths for my shipmates.
