ReachOUT.tv is honored to have Greg Porteus as our guest this week. Greg is a United States Coast Guard Coxswain from the Department of Homeland Security, US Coast Guard Auxiliary. He's in charge of a fully equipped search & rescue 52 foot ship called Launch 5, but actually named after a fallen police hero Henry Wallburger. Greg 'rescued' this sunken boat from the Passaic River and fully restored Launch5 using his own money in a labor of love. Listen to him and fellow crewmen Rich Veit & Charles Luciano tell of their heroic rescue missions & saving of lives. Hear their part in transporting nurses & help on Sept 11, 2001, and how they have been trained in helicopter rescue. We can feel safer with such a group of unselfish, dedicated, & knowledgeable men and women patrolling our waters as they use Launch5 as a ministry to not only help the public, but also the crew members who contribute their time.
