Ancient Order of the Pterodactyl
Activities and programs in response to our association’s objectives provide value to members, to the Coast Guard and to the public. Absent the existence of this association, this document would not exist, none of the recent past accomplishments listed here would have occurred and none of the ongoing programs of the association would be pursued.
Only those who have willfully placed themselves in harms way know that innermost feeling which comes from the personal experience of saving lives or property can understand the bonding and uniqueness of Coast Guard aviation crew members.
1. To actively contribute to the enlargement and perpetuation of the history of Coast Guard Aviation and the recognition thereof, both internally and to areas external to the service.
