ST. INIGOES, Maryland (NNS) -- Operating under the Department of Homeland Security and not the Department of Defense, the Coast Guard was the only branch of the United States military affected by the government shutdown. About 42,000 active-duty Coast Guardsmen – all considered essential personnel – reported for duty and worked without pay.
After learning that some of their fellow service members at Coast Guard Station St. Inigoes were having to take on part-time jobs during the shutdown period, the Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA) at NAS Patuxent River decided to take action and came up with the idea of collecting nonperishable donations to assist them.
They shouldn’t have to worry about taking care of their families financially while still proudly coming to work every day to patrol our shore,” said Chief Aviation Electronics Technician Tracy Moore, president of the Pax River CPOA. “Once it was brought to the CPOA’s attention, we vetted the idea through [Pax River’s] Command Master Chief Kevin Guy and he loved the idea of us taking care of our own.”
Good Morning GOATS!
