The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports U.S. Coast Guard members and their families, has hired Captain Ron LaBrec USCG (retired) as regional director for the Mid-Atlantic states. A resident of Virginia, he will work closely with the Coast Guard units in the Mid-Atlantic region to identify and fulfill education, morale and family support for Coast Guard members.
“We welcome Ron to the Coast Guard Foundation team,” said Susan Ludwig, president of the Coast Guard Foundation. “We look forward to his work building on the core support we’ve provided the Coast Guard for almost 50 years through the generosity of our donors on the East Coast.”
LaBrec has more than 30 years of service in the Coast Guard. Most recently, he was assistant superintendent of the Coast Guard Academy. Other posts included commanding officer of the Coast Guard Recruiting Command, director of Public Affairs for the Coast Guard and chief of training for the Coast Guard’s Yorktown, Va., training center and the National Search and Rescue School. He is a 1989 graduate of the Coast Guard Academy and holds a master’s degree from Boston University.
“As a retired member of the Coast Guard, I appreciate the vital work that the Foundation does and the effect it has on those who serve and their families,” said LaBrec. “I am honored to work towards the benefit of the men and women of the United States Coast Guard as a member of the Coast Guard Foundation team.”
