Mission one is saving human lives, but the Coast Guard recently had an opportunity to help a pregnant deer that had become stuck in some rocks in Michigan’s Manistee River.

After freeing the deer from some rocks and carrying her to a nearby field, the crew notified local authorities.

According to Petty Officer 3rd Class Adrian Ledesma, “Knowing how much people love animals and want to help them, we decided to rescue the deer before a person without rescue training could get hurt.”

Good thinking, and well done!

The Coast Guard saved a guy. And his dog. In a boat…made of duct tape.


Private Nadir was once an Afghan interpreter for U.S. forces… and now he’s a U.S. Marine!
