Veterans Day tribute -- U.S. Coast Guard

As part of my annual Veterans Day tribute, I'm featuring a photograph of a cook from each of the services. We owe a lot to these men and women, many who have sacrificed a big part of their lives to serve this great county. A hearty thank you from 'Round the Chuckbox.

CGC Forward FS bakes bread underway

ATLANTIC OCEAN--Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Dave Blonn takes loaves of fresh baked bread out of the galley oven onboard the Coast Guard Cutter Forward while underway during an African Maritime Law Enforcement Partnership mission May 31, 2011. The Coast Guard Cutter Forward deployed on a four-month patrol to West Africa in support of the AMLEP mission in an effort to increase resident host nation capabilities and to build maritime safety and security on and off shore. The team of five food service specialists prepare three meals a day for the crew of the Forward, as well as a snack for late night watch standers.
