This letter was written by a member of the United States Coast Guard [USCG] to address some of the details with the issue at Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area. I have chosen to withhold the name of the USCG personnel as well as the intermediary who forwarded the letter to me. Additionally, a new file was generated to replace the original USCG author’s properties [the metadata] with my own.
Here is the file in Word 97-2003 format.
Even if you don’t live in the state of North Carolina, there is a good chance that you or someone you know visits the Outer Banks for recreational purposes. If you [or they] wish to continue their recreational activities at the levels they’ve become accustomed to, it would behoove you and them to mail [or send electronically online] this letter to everyone of the people listed in the Copy List after the closing.
If you don’t—or if you expect “someone else” to handle this level of participation in government—please don’t be surprised when your beaches of choice steadily become more and more crowded every season until they too are closed.
