"Look! It's the Coast Guard!" was the cry from several students visiting the Seaport on a field trip. After a quick hello one intrepid student said "can I have your autograph?" Despite being taken aback by the unusual request, Brent played along admonishing the young man to "stay safe on the water" and signing with a flourish. Suddenly a sea of small hands were thrust out to get their very own Coast Guard autograph.
After a few minutes of signing, chatting, laughing and answering students' questions about the Coast Guard it was time to move along. That chance encounter certainly brightened Brent's day and we hope it did the same for those young people.
