HOUSTON — U.S. Coast Guard stations along the Texas Gulf Coast welcomed the first of hundreds of reservists called up following last week's terrorist attacks.

Although mobilization of reservists covered other military branches, only the Coast Guard had responded this weekend.

Some of the 300 reservists reported Saturday, said Coast Guard Petty Officer Mark Mackowiak. The rest were expected to report to their units by Monday night.
