A Coast Guard Sector San Diego air crewmember drops a line to the Marine Corps 1st Reconnaissance Battalion small boat crew below, which allows them to coordinate and hoist a rescue basket from the boat to the helicopter during a hoist training exercise, March 19. Coast Guard crews regularly undergo exercises in order to ensure readiness and safety of life at sea, which enables them to perform hoists needed to maintain qualifications.
