On #BlackFriday, we're thankful for the hard-working Coast Guardsmen aboard our Black Hulls. #BlackHullFriday While many of you are out shopping or sneaking a second helping of turkey and stuffing, these crews are out completing Operation Fall Retrieve and gearing up for winter.

Know the signs of hypothermia, keep an eye on everyone while you are outside, and exercise caution when on or near the water. Remember: dress for the water temperature, not the air temperature. Take precautions, not chances.
