From the field: CGC Neah Bay crew tackles a dirty job for a good cause

>With all of the on-going Ninth District operations and the multitude of preparations for yesterday’s Ninth District Change of Command, you may have overlooked that last week marked the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Neah Bay, however, jumped on the opportunity to help clean up Cleveland April 22, 2010. Here’s a quick recap on the crew’s Earth Day event from the cutter’s Commanding Officer, Lt. Cmdr. William Woitrya:

“This morning [April 22], the crew from Neah Bay performed an Earth Day cleanup of the waterfront area, and Marginal Road in the vicinity of the moorings [in Cleveland]. Nine crew members participated, worked for 30 total hours and collected almost 1,000 pounds of trash from the local area.”

Once again, a crew from one of the Coast Guard’s hardest working fleet of ships steps up to make a difference in the community.

What do you do to make a difference in your community?
