    This past week, I came across a post from Admiral Karl Shultz, the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard. With his permission, I am sharing what he wrote.
    “It is with great sadness to learn of the passing of Dr. Olivia Hooker, 103, a pioneer in the history of women and minorities in the U.S. Coast Guard and the Nation, and a true national treasure.

    Thank you to Bob Asztalos for the following information and Scott Hausmann for the images.
    On Nov. 16, members of Flotilla 12 and staff from the Florida Health Care Association arrived at Station Panama City to provide a Thanksgiving meal.
    This was due to the generosity of FCHA staff and the members of USCG Aux Flotilla 12.
    The crew of seven served about 30 personnel at the station.
    With so much going on in our area post-Hurricane Michael, it is important to remember and give thanks to those working hard to rebuild.

    Thank you to Bob Asztalos for submitting the following article.
    On Veterans Day members of Flotilla 12 participated in the Florida Health Care Association’s annual salute to veterans in our local nursing homes. The event honored vets from WWII, Korean Conflict, Cold War, Viet Nam and Mid-East conflicts. The honorees are residents and staff of nursing homes in and around Tallahassee.

    Many of us are still working to find a new normal following Michael. This will take time and a lot of patience.
    It has been refreshing to see so many come to the aid of our communities. The continued support and commitment to help each other gives great hope.
    As a follow-up to last week, I erroneously wrote that Station Panama City had provided the Aids to Navigation (ATON) patrol. Steve Hults sent in this correction.

    Last week, many of us were still in recovery mode for our own communities. As many return to a semblance of normal, there are still so many along the Gulf coast and into Georgia that are still struggling.
    The Flotilla has not been called to assist at this time. The ANT (aides to navigation) team from Station Panama City was able to travel over and ensure our navigation waterways were intact, fixing any discrepancies. This has not stopped many of our members from working within their local communities to assist.

    It goes without saying that our hearts are broken for our communities!
    The effects of Michael are devastating throughout the area.
    Everyone’s life has been affected in one way or another.
    As we all work to regain a sense of normal and recover, it is important to remember that this powerful storm not only affected land, but also our waterways.
    With the storm surge, heavy rain and winds, we know there was a lot of debris that entered our waterways. This will continue in the weeks ahead as debris moves down stream and out into the Gulf.

    Thank you to Duane Treadon for the following article.
    The paddle sports industry has seen continued growth over the past several years. With a low cost and easy availability more and more people are trying kayaking and stand up paddle boards every day.
    Unfortunately there has also been an increase of injuries and deaths related to the sport. In recent years over 30 percent of boating accidents nationwide have involved paddle craft.

    The following article ran in the Navigator, a publication distributed by the United States Coast Guard: From the Editor: Semper Paratus – Answering The Call.
    “Semper Paratus, anyone remotely connected with the U.S. Coast Guard knows these words. But, what does “Always Ready” really mean? For the active duty, always being ready is ensured by Coasties standing the watch. Be the shore-bound ort\ underway, there is always someone in the active duty Coast Guard who is Semper Paratus what ever the needs of mariners may be.
