If you grew up in West Michigan, chances are you attended the Coast Guard Festival in Grand Haven at least once. The 10-day-long (July 26-Aug. 4) festival honors the men and women serving in the US Coast Guard. There are loads of events to pique your interest.
While many get their first introduction to the Coast Guard at the Festival, others meet Coasties when they need maritime assistance. Maybe you should consider CG service as a career?
