The Speaking tube is a new show on Tuesday nights, opposite the Assembly meeting. Host, Jessica Gibson is inviting members of the Coast Guard community in to speak with her and share their music and stories.

Below are the first two episodes:

They take us on a journey of all the concerts and plays they have been to together, one song at a time. Join in on the concert stories, memories and songs of Ray and Aubrey.

Oct 8th: Isn’t that was friends are for? Coast guard spouses, Doloris and Lana, and their good friend Megan, share what it is like moving from town to town and making new friends.
