Special to the PRESS
I’m curious to know if the community that the Coast Guard Station at South Padre serves is reaching out to help and/or support the crew members there who are continuing to work even though they are not being paid?
They are certainly there for the community every time they’re called upon.
I visited there last year and was very impressed with those young men and women.
