In this episode of the Ocean Mist Power Hour, host Misty Young interviews Master Chief David Pierias, Commanding Officer of the United States Coast Guard Station Chetco River, and Sue Mathis, Auxiliary Flotilla Commander of U.S. Coast Guard Station Chetco River.

They discuss a bit of history and daily life in the Coast Guard, the effect the military and law enforcement base has on the local area, burials at sea and the role of the Auxiliary in supporting the mission of the US Coast Guard.

With 44 enlisted personnel on base and over 20 volunteer Auxiliarists, Station Chetco River is a vibrant and active community serving and protecting our own Harbor Brookings sport and commercial fishing industry, as well as pleasure boaters and citizens and visitors to the area.

Learn how you can become active and helpful to your neighbors and community and how the U.S. Coast Guard quietly serves you every day.
