Sail-World.com : Coast Guard Foundation welcomes USCG Barque Eagle

Coast Guard Foundation welcomes USCG Barque Eagle

'Coast Guard Foundation'   

The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to the education, welfare and morale of all Coast Guard members and their families, announced today that it will host a reception to welcome the U.S. Coast Guard Barque Eagle at the Independence Seaport Museum at Penn’s Landing on March 18, 2011, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

The official kick-off and first stop of the Eagle’s 75th anniversary tour, the reception will raise awareness of the Coast Guard Foundation’s mission to serve the men and women of the Coast Guard, as well as its support for leadership and training of the country’s Coast Guard officers. Attendees at the reception will include Coast Guard Foundation guests, Atlantic-area (LANT) command and Philadelphia-area Coast Guard members, local Coast Guard Auxiliary members, Eagle crewmembers and their families, museum supporters and local officials. Guided tours of the tall ship will be given to guests prior to and during the reception.

Originally built in Germany and commissioned as Horst Wessel in 1936, the tall ship was taken as a war reparation after World War II and re-commissioned as the Coast Guard Cutter Barque Eagle. From its homeport in New London, Connecticut, Coast Guard Academy cadets and officer candidates have trained and learned leadership skills on the Eagle for over 60 years. The Coast Guard Foundation reception will pay homage to the Eagle’s legacy and the individuals who have served and trained aboard the vessel.

'We are proud to host the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle reception at the kick off to its historic 75th anniversary tour,' said Anne Brengle, president of the Coast Guard Foundation. 'The event reinforces our commitment to the Coast Guard and its officers, and helps us increase awareness for our fundraising efforts such as our leadership training programs at the Coast Guard Academy and the Shipmate Fund, which supports enlisted members at units and sectors throughout the country.'

Since its inception in 1969, the Coast Guard Foundation has been committed to inspiring leadership, learning and a proud legacy of service to our nation by supporting the men and women of the United States Coast Guard and their families. The Foundation provides higher education grants to enlisted personnel, reservists and their children, financial support for college to families of Coast Guard members lost in the line of duty, relief to Coast Guard families who have lost possessions in natural disasters, and support for morale programs, including funding recreation, exercise and family-oriented facilities.
