The keynote speaker for the dinner will be Admiral Robert Papp, Commandant of the United States Coast Guard. Noted comedian and musician, Mark Russell will add his unique blend of music and comedy to the evening. The annual event will pay tribute to the men and women of the service and raise funds and awareness for the programs and projects of the Coast Guard Foundation.

'This tribute dinner will be an exceptional event,' said Robert J. Flynn, chairman of the board, Coast Guard Foundation.

'We are honored to support the men and the women of the United States Coast Guard, and look forward to Mark Russell bringing humor and good cheer to the occasion.'

Russell spent 30 years on public television as host of the Mark Russell Comedy Specials. During those same years he wrote a syndicated column and traveled across the United States performing at colleges, conventions and in theaters.

The Coast Guard Foundation’s ninth Annual Tribute to the United States Coast Guard in Our Nation’s Capital will take place Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at 201 Waterfront St., National Harbor, Maryland.
