8:00 - Lecture 

For nearly 100 years, Coast Guard aviators have patrolled over U.S. waters performing countless missions of search and rescue, airborne law enforcement, and more. Vice Admiral John Currier, retired Vice Commandant of the USCG, has seen it all during his 6,023 flight hours in aircraft and helicopters from Alaska to Miami and command positions.  Find out about some of the most challenging missions and how the Coast Guard maintains its operational readiness through safety and innovation. It's a big job for a small service.
