"Certainly this is historic, ...

it's different, but I think it's very consistent with the long partnership we've had with the United States Navy stretching all the way back to our birth of 218 plus years ago," Rear Adm. Thomas f. Atkin, Commander, Deployable Operations Group, U.S. Coast Guard said today on the DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable. Rear Adm. Atkin, U.S. Coast Guard Master Chief Darrick L. DeWitt and U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Christian Dunbar, Director of Training, U.S. Navy Special Warfare Center joined us to discuss the new program allowing assignment of U.S. Coast Guard personnel to train and serve with the U.S. Navy SEALS.

With us on the call was Andrew Lubin of Get the Gouge, Jonas Hogg of the Ball Gunner, Chuck Simmins of America's North Shore Journal, Jim Dolbow with the Unofficial Coast Guard Blog, Christian Lowe with, and Bruce McQuain with QandO.
