Pristine blue waters, sandy beaches and palm trees were the backdrop for a Dominican-led two-day Civil-Military Operation event in the province of Pedernales, Dominican Republic, on June 6 and 7. These events kicked off a campaign called Costas Seguras (Safe Coasts) in Isla Beata and Cabo Rojo, which included a Medical Civic Action Program (MEDCAP) and boat registration for local fishermen and their families.
