Coast Guard Foundation president Susan Ludwig sent a video thank you to members of the Coast Guard, who were helping the Navy aboard the hospital ship Comfort in New York, evacuating cruise ship passengers and screening container ships.

“Their service to our nation continues, whether in search-and-rescue, counter-narcotics or overseeing the vast maritime system … that supplies over 90 percent of our goods, like medical supplies and cleaning products,” Ludwig said in the video.

The foundation is identifying critical needs of the Coast Guard, including providing immediate “tragedy assistance.”

Last week, reported that the number of covid-19 cases among Coast Guard members had tripled to 90 within two weeks. The Coast Guard assisted in debarking more than 250,000 people from cruise ships since covid-19 cases first appeared.
