I have spent most of my adult life as part of the Coast Guard, and I loved every day of it. It has been one adventure after another, being part of different crews that have arrested hundreds of drug smugglers and confiscated countless tons of illicit drugs meant for our cities. I have been part of the maritime agencies that protected the domestic waters that border our country, and have played my part in keeping our society clean and safe.
If you want to know more about what the Coast Guard does, then you should visit the Tampa Bay Veteran’s Alliance. Many of our vets visit there, and with a large port of call in Tampa, we are happy to educate our fellow Americans.
