Coast Guard Foundation announces 2015 tribute

The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to the education and welfare of Coast Guard members and their families, announced the details of its annual salute to the 8th Coast Guard District.

Held on March 13 in New Orleans, Thomas Allegretti and the American Waterways Operators will be honored at the event for their support, and special recognition will be given to a motor lifeboat crew from Pensacola, Florida and an aircrew from Air Station Houston, Texas. The New Orleans salute raises approximately $500,000 each year to fund education, support and relief programs for the Coast Guard Foundation.
