Coast Guard Foundation president Anne Brengle was recognized with the Coast Guard Distinguished Public Service Award at the 36th annual salute to the U.S. Coast Guard in New York on Oct. 6.
The award was read by retired Rear Adm. James Van Sice, vice chairman of the foundation’s board of trustees, and was presented by Adm. Paul Zukunft, commandant, and Adm. Charles Michel, vice commandant.
Brengle was recognized for her contributions to the service.
“I have been fortunate enough to be a part of a devoted team whose driving mission has been to provide assistance to the brave men and women of the Coast Guard,” Brengle said in a statement.
“These service members are selfless and professional in the execution of their duties, and we at the foundation honor that proud heritage. It is humbling to accept this award, and I thank the commandant, vice commandant and all the members of the Coast Guard, past and present, for their service.”
