Coming up at the end of this week, March 24, is the anniversary of Exxon Valdez – one of the largest oils spills in the nation’s history. However, our history actually goes back prior to Exxon Valdez to the grounding of the tanker Argo Merchant in 1976.
During the week, we’ll post photos of our work with the Coast Guard from our beginning to the present spotlighting our work together in the Arctic, during hurricanes, Deepwater Horizon, and other incidents.
Head on over to USCG Instagram and view how we partner to keep the nation’s coasts and waterways safe for maritime commerce, recreational activities, and wildlife.
