Sunset Parade

One of the perks of being at Undisclosed is our close range to the United States Coast Guard training base in Cape May, New Jersey.

We had been there a month ago to hear a speaker talk about the Coast Guard involvement in the “Perfect Storm”.Tonight we went with our friends to see the Sunset Parade.They open the base to the public, and as long as you have valid picture identification,you can come in.The let you go to the parade field and it is so impressive. You see the recruits all lined up in the units.
There is the Coast Guard band at one corner of the field.There is a reviewing stand where the base commanders stand and a few V.I.P’s, and the units, along with their 10 person precision drill team, parade through the grounds.

The fact the America goes into turmoil on a daily basis crossed my mind as I watched this impressive display of personnel.The national anthem gave me goosebumps: to be on a military base and see this display of their daily life was awesome.I left with even MORE respect for the Coast Guard than I had before.
