Behind the scenes look at the Coast Guard

Every year people from around the nation come to Grand Haven to honor the men and women of the United States Coast Guard at the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival. Eva Aguirre Cooper and WOOD TV8 crew were able to take a behind the scenes look at the Coast Guard’s unique aviation and naval missions.

Watch the video above to see the footage from US Coast Guard helicopters and a first hand experience at a water rescue training exercise. The Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival runs from Friday July 25th through Sunday August 3rd.
