Nathanael Kruse: There was one time where we had to go out and save a craft that was coming up and there was 242 people on board. We had people that were plunging themselves in the water, they were jumping overboard. Going out there, being able to just give any type of assistance, helping them get off their boat, get on to our vessel, find them food, water they so desperately needed.
That was the first time where I really saved someone's life. It showed me that I made the right decision that made me come to the Coast Guard.closeX
