The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to the education, welfare and morale of all Coast Guard members and their families, recently launched its "Are You One in a Million?" campaign in conjunction with its 40th anniversary celebration of service to the Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard has rescued more than 1 million people since it was established in 1790.
Honoring the heroic efforts of servicemen and women throughout history, the Foundation's "Are You One in a Million?" project attempts to capture and highlight the unique and diverse stories, and personal impact, of more than 1 million successful missions.
The foundation will post them to the site on a daily basis. Participants can also mail their stories to the Coast Guard Foundation, 394 Taugwonk Road, Stonington, CT 06378. A picture of individuals rescued and their families can be submitted with each story.
