During #HispanicHeritageMonth, the Coast Guard recognizes and celebrates the contributions of Hispanic Americans to our Nation and Service. 🇺🇸 ⚓
This year’s theme, as determined by the National Council of Hispanic Employment Program Managers (NCHEPM), is: “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation.”
“Unidos” translates to mean united or connected.
Unification is a driving factor in the #CoastGuard in creating a workplace that is inclusive and equitable. As early as the 1800s, Hispanic Americans have served with honor and distinction in the Coast Guard as lighthouse keepers, surfmen, cutterman, and aviators.
Today, the Coast Guard’s Hispanic American workforce continues to achieve and contribute to the Service and can be proud of the legacy they follow and the one they leave behind for future members. 🙌
