The 11th edition of the Coast Guardsman's Manual continues the tradition first started in 1952 to serve as a primer that introduces new recruits to their Coast Guard and helps them make the transition from civilian to Coast Guardsman. Second, it serves as a handy reference that Sailors can rely on as a ready source of basic information as they continue their service, whether for only one "hitch" or for an entire career. Updates with new photos fully describe today's increasingly modern Coast Guard as well as useful information on the variety of Coast Guard missions, organization, history, installations, among other subjects. Continued emphasis is placed on safety of life, protection of national assets, and defending the homeland. The second half of this book is also ideal for members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and civilian recreational boaters. Key chapters include ones on first aid, boating safety, fire-fighting, maintenance, swimming, and lifesaving.
