Even the best swimmers wear life jackets!

#USCG Capt. Kwang-Ping Hsu experienced his own version of the “American Dream” and served as a true role model for members of the Coast Guard’s long blue line. Hsu and his family fled China during WWII and adopted his new country with honor and dignity becoming the first foreign-born cadet at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and serving the country for more than 30 years.
