Coast Guard Vice Commandant Vice Adm. Sally Brice-O'Hara presided over the ribbon cutting of a new Coast Guard exhibit at the Pentagon in Arlington, VA, on Jan. 19, 2011. She was joined by many of the Coast Guard personnel who are assigned to the Pentagon full time. The new display is in the Visitor's Center next to the other services' exhibits, and seeks to educate the Center's 250 thousand annual visitors about the Coast Guard's wide portfolio of missions and authorities. The exhibit was designed around the idea that people are the Service's most valuable asset, and features the theme “Heroes in our Midst.” Framed below a stylized fuselage of a Coast Guard helicopter, the display is comprised of large-panel photos and a video describing the Coast Guard's many missions.
