Coast Guard visits Camas
Helicopter and rescue boat arrive at Doc Harris field
Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Camas schoolchildren recently had the unique opportunity to climb aboard a helicopter, hop on a response boat and meet Coast Guard personnel.
The June 6 visit had been arranged by Jeff Lukowiak, a resident agent-in-charge with the Coast Guard Investigative Service.
"I spend so much time away from home tending to the needs of the service, it's always fun to get to share my job and experiences with my family and children so I thought why not share with everyone I can," he said.
"I always feel great being able to share my opinion that I work for the best organization in the world," Lukowiak said. "We get to save people's lives, protect the environment and make a difference everyday. How many people get to do that and get paid for it?"
