1_CGFOUNDATION

The Coast Guard Foundation recognized Coast Guard Sector New Orleans for its response during Hurricane Ida in August 2021.

The recognition was part of the foundation’s Tribute to the Eighth Coast Guard District on March 11 at the World War II Museum in New Orleans.

“When you assist people during the most difficult times in their lives, either after a death or after witnessing their homes being destroyed, you can’t help but be transformed by the experience,” Susan Ludwig, president of the Coast Guard Foundation, said in a statement.

The foundation also honored the memory of longtime board member and marine transportation executive Otto Candies Jr., who died in February 2021. Candies started the Coast Guard Foundation’s New Orleans event with fellow board member Boysie Bollinger and served as the dinner chairman for most of its history. Since 1994, the Tribute to the Eighth Coast Guard District has raised more than $9 million for Foundation programs.
