Mommy is a helicopter pilot with the United States Coast Guard.
Mommy's name is Emily and my name is Declan. Sometimes Mommy has to stay on the ship for days at a time, while I stay at home with Daddy. His name is Tony. We laugh and have so much fun!
Mommy joined the Coast Guard to help protect and save people. Daddy says that Mommy keeps us safe too.
Sometimes she saves people lost at sea. They call it search and rescue. Mommy is so brave!
The Coast Guard uses special icebreakers on the front of their ships to break up the ice in the sea. Mommy tells the ship where the heavy ice is.
They make an opening in the ice for larger ships to sail through bringing food, clothes and toys to our ports. Mommy says the ships need to bring packages to us from other countries. It is called trade.
