In Memory of the Coast Guard



Today I would like to remember the Coast Guard crew from the MH-65C Dolphin helicopter.  Their aircraft crashed in Mobile Bay during a training mission on February 28:

Lt. Cmdr. Dale Taylor of Snow Hill, North Carolina

Lt. j.g. Thomas Cameron of Portland, Oregon

Chief Petty Officer Fernando Jorge of Cypress Valley, California

Petty Officer 3rd Class Andrew Knight of Thomasville, Alabama



I did not know this crew, but I have close friends who do.  I do know that the Coast Guard mission is dangerous as they secure our borders.


I ask you to say a prayer for their families and all the families of service members and first responders who serve with valor.

Mahalo,

Kim in Hawaii
