>The People Have Spoken!

>In November, Coast Guard Public Affairs called for the best pictures taken by members of Team Coast Guard in 2009. Entries poured in from units all across the country, and from the original 700 submissions, forty were selected as finalists. Our own MK2 Joshua Cook’s photo of the extreme conditions SYCAMORE’s crew faced during their transit to Russia and Japan was chosen as a finalist and selected as First Runner Up by the public in the People’s Choice Award! MK2 Cook’s photo may be used by Public Affairs in publications or online in the upcoming year.

All of the finalists can be seen here: http://uscg.mil/socialmedia/pc2010/.
