Loss of crewmen still affects service 10 years later

Ten years ago, the Coast Guard lost two members of our service family. Petty Officer 2nd Class Scott Chism and Seaman Chris Ferreby were crewmembers at Station Niagara well before I was stationed here as officer-in-charge. But, their absence is still felt today, as we’re reminded of their sacrifice every time we suit up and carry out the same missions in the same waters that they had patrolled.
