Coast Guard Magazine
For those of you who don't subscribe to the Coast Guard Magazine you're missing out on a first class publication. The articles are very information as to what is going on in the Coast Guard world and the beauty of the photography is outstanding. Take a look at the on-line edition and you can read up on "Social Media" (facebook, twitter, and yes, even this blog) and learn how it will impact Team Coast Guard now and in the future.
Here is an excerpt from the current issue quoting Commandant Thad Allen on Social Media:
"It is critically important that the senior leaders of the Coast Guard understand what technology is doing today, how it is changing, and how we must change with it," said Allen. "Social Media takes out the middle man and lets interested parties communicate nearly directly with one another."
