And here's the link to it. The caption reads:
A heavily armed Coast Guard sailor maintains a vigil around the facility in New Orleans on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2005. The facility is under heavy guard after incidents of rampant looting and a general breakdown of society following Hurricane Katrina. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)As I look at the pic, I see how, indeed, it is Station/Sector New Orleans. There's a berm around the station on the land side, and that's what he's standing on. You'll perhaps also remember that I reported last week that the building had been looted.
I'm still struck, however, by his lack of a uniform blouse and his rolled up sleeves. Like he thinks he's James Dean or something. And no hat. I can't seem to find the pictures in the uniform manual that show this as an optional ODU outfit.
Compare that image with this one.

Petty Officer McClain can work for me.
