Last month, the U.S. Coast Guard announced the winners of its “People’s Choice” photo contest, which we covered here. This month we have the winners of the in-house photo contest from the Coasties. These are great photos and although we’ve all seen similar photos before, we can’t seem to get enough of them. When you see this first photo of a motor lifeboat coming off the top of a wave, you know exactly the feeling in the pit of the stomach of everyone aboard that boat.
These are the work of the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard and they represent, and reflect, the often dangerous and dramatic work these people do in the course of protecting us all. Remember that the next time you feel like groaning about a safety inspection or a request for a contribution to the U.S. Coast Guard Foundation.
