HONOLULU. Auxiliarist George Sumner, crew member of District 14’s Utility Boat Medium 31 (UTM) tosses a heaving ball to an Active Duty Coast Guard member on an Active Duty Coast Guard facility outside of Honolulu Harbor. This is part of 2-boat training done on a weekly basis with the Auxiliary and the Active Duty side. The crew on the UTM spend over 400 hours each year training with the Active Duty at Sand Island Coast Guard Station, saving the Coast Guard thousands of dollars in manpower.
