Dove Review

What a wonderful documentary about the men and women who are in the Coast Guard, stationed in Kodiak and Sitka, Alaska. This brave group has a job to do to rescue people in the water and on land. They travel by helicopter, plane and boat, and their duty is to help in any way they can. In this documentary, they discuss life in the Coast Guard, as well as what they do off duty and what happens during rescues.

These brave men and women brave the elements to help people in trouble, including a fisherman having seizures, a pinned logger truck driver, a stroke victim, and a missing teenager. They not only come and rescue, but they also help with medical aide and transport people to hospitals. Many of the small villages in Alaska have little to no medical services, so the Coast Guard helps them get the quality medical care they need.

The Coast Guard is also a big part of the communities where they serve. They give survival instruction to school children, take part in community activities, and some of them operate stores along with their families. They are available for service even on their days off, when they have family activities at home, or while they’re at home sleeping. The locals greatly appreciate their Coast Guard, who are on call all day, every day of the week. Some of them continue to serve even after their tour of duty is over. Others leave, but they always remember the area in which they served.

“Coast Guard Alaska – Season 2” offers an educational look at life in the Coast Guard. It also enlightens the viewer of the day-to-day responsibilities the Coast Guard has. Viewers will be on the edge of their seat, hoping for the safety of the crew and victims. We are proud to award this documentary the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12-plus.
