We were honored yesterday to welcome Capt. James Passarelli, commanding officer of the USCGC Waesche and his crew at our monthly Facility Breakfast. Captain Passarelli told the dramatic story of how the crew of the Waesche recently interdicted a $73MM shipment of cocaine off the coast of Central America. This is the stuff you see in movies! Yet these brave men and women go out to see for months at a time and risk their lives FOR REAL. We owe them all a profound debt.
The Waesche will be in port for the next month so if you see any of the crew around the Lodge, please welcome them and even buy them a beverage. They deserve it.
Here is a sample of the video coverage
