A number of Auxiliary University Programs Unit William and Mary students participated in formal internships and Coast Guard operational activities throughout the country this past summer. From the nearby waters of Hampton Roads to Chicago, Brazil, and even a planet 57 million miles away from Earth, their activities were as diverse as the locations in which they took place.
Andrew Husted, AUP Unit Auburn Class of 2013, shared some of his own experiences in the Coast Guard Auxiliary and his growing emergency response resume.
