My Chief of Staff Nancy Many and I, along with Rep. Max Gruenberg, were privileged to tour the Hickory, a US Coast Guard buoy tender vessel. The ship was in Juneau, along with other buoy tenders to participate in the 2008 “Buoy Tender Roundup” – a yearly competition to determine this year’s champion in the difficult work they do to maintain buoys off shore, in harbors, and major rivers.

I never cease to be amazed at the marvel of new technology, and especially the quality of our military.

One of the photos show me at the helm of the Hickory, with my hands on the controls preparing to pilot the ship out to sea - if you can’t trust a legislator, whom can you trust? Actually, I’m posing (as if you didn’t know). If I had to pilot this ship, we would all be in serious trouble. Another photo shows Rep. Gruenberg and me standing proudly with the Coast Guard crew in the pilothouse.
