 Product Description

The story of the Coast Guard is one of proud service in peace and at war. Featured on this DVD are six rare films rescued from government archives, dating as far back as 1935. They show some of the greatest moments in the history of the 'First Fleet' in the 20th Century.

See the men of the Coast Guard as they keep the sea lanes safe, alerting merchant vessels to the presence of icebergs in the North Atlantic in "International Ice Patrol". Go with a cutter crew on the "Alaska Patrol" and see our nation's 50th State in full color circa 1950! Feel your pulse rise as the USCG cutter at Ocean Station November races to rescue the passengers and crew of a Pan Am Clipper forced to ditch in the Pacific.

See cadets train for sea duty, and go with them aboard the training vessel Eagle.

Finally, in "Coast Guard on Foreign Shores", see how the USCG helped change the course of WWII, fighting Hitler s U-boats, laying mines, and delivering hundreds of thousands of men and tons of equipment to battlefields from North Africa to Normandy to Iwo Jima.

This is the ultimate gift for anyone who ever served in the Coast Guard!
