"My Hawaiian Turkey" by Abigail, age 8, child of LTjg Kaleb Showalter and Katie Showalter.

"Abigail wanted to show one of her favorite things about Thanksgiving - coloring and drawing fun turkeys! This year she wanted to make it a rainbow to represent our current station in Hawaii," shared her parents.

With special thanks to all of our Coastie Campers who submitted artwork for this year's Coast Guard Foundation Thanksgiving card.
