Coast Guard tribute set for June

The Coast Guard Foundation’s seventh annual Tribute to the United States Coast Guard in Our Nation’s Capital will take place June 8 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

The dinner will honor the work of the Coast Guard, and this year’s event also will recognize Coast Guard families.

The annual tribute raises funds to support the Coast Guard Foundation’s projects and programs that improve the lives and performance of Coast Guard members and their families and Coast Guard Academy cadets.

During the program, the four previous secretaries of the Coast Guard will be recognized: Michael Chertoff and Tom Ridge, former Homeland Security secretaries; and Norman Mineta and Rodney Slater, former Transportation secretaries.

“From harrowing water rescues to leading last year’s oil spill cleanup efforts in the Gulf Coast, the Coast Guard does so much for the nation, and we at the Coast Guard Foundation are honored to give back to them,” Coast Guard Foundation president Anne Brengle said in a statement. “We are proud to offer our time, effort and financial support to Coast Guard members and their families.”
