Congrats Maggie O! Semper Paratus!

A fellow bagpiping Copper and friend of mine emailed me today with great news. His oldest daughter Maggie has been accepted to the US Coast Guard Academy. She starts Swab Summer the end of this month so she can get acclimated to the military life before beginning her first year in New London, CT. A great student and gifted swimmer to boot Maggie will be studying mechanical engineering and has aspirations to someday pilot a Jayhawk Helicopter.

She is one squared away young woman and I wish her well. I know that someday we'll all be seeing her on the Discovery Network piloting her Jayhawk to rescue some poor soul on the Bering Sea. I wonder if they have a ride along program.
