Coast Guard Band Goes Hollywood

Members of the United States Coast Guard band, based in New London, Connecticut, are in California today. As Lori Mack from Here & Now contributor WNPR reports, they plan to march up the red carpet for the premiere of film “The Finest Hours.”

The Disney movie is based on a true story about a harrowing rescue by the Coast Guard in 1952 when two oil tankers were broken in half by a nor’easter off the coast of Massachusetts.
