Way to go, Laurin

If you happen to see my daughter, Laurin Smith, please congratulate her. She just completed a week in the Coast Guard Academy AIM program in New London, Conn.

The program consisted of actual academy life experiences, complete with early morning reveille and calisthenics to advanced engineering classes. While there, she met like-minded students from around the nation who are seriously considering application to the CGA.
