I Knew The COAST GUARD Helps PROTECT OUR BORDER, But I Never Realized They Were THIS GOOD!!

VIA| Have you ever heard of HITRON? This video will tell you all about it and you will see and understand the U.S. Coast Guard in an entirely new way. This is not your average Coast Guard video.

Sit back and enjoy this intimate view into the 21st-century Coast Guard.
