Good Boy

The multi-agency exercise tested the readiness of the participants’ ability to handle various potential threats.

Clean Sweep

Tosca and her Maritime Security Response Team canine officer sweep the deck of Mississippi Canyon Block 582, Medusa Platform during a joint exercise. The MSRT, Murphy Oil Corporation, and DoD worked together to train to respond to threats aboard the production facility.

Penguin Star

Obviously not a dog, but who could resist this amazing penguin posing in front of a U.S. Coast Guard vessel? The U.S. Coast Guard serves all over the entire world!

This curious Adelie penguin stands near the Coast Guard Cutter Polar Star on McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. During their visit to Antarctica for Deep Freeze 2016, the U.S. military’s logistical support to the National Science Foundation-managed U.S. Antarctic Program, the Polar Star crew encountered a variety of Antarctic marine life, including penguins, whales, and seals.
