The team putting together the National Coast Guard Museum in New London is asking for help and they have a new “Plank Owner” program that they hope will provide some extra incentive. If you need more information, they have it available in a couple of forms, a 20 page annual report for 2015 that includes a financial statement or you can take a look at their newsletter.
Perhaps most convincing, they point out that the Coast Guard is the only military service without a National Museum. The Army has 56, the Air Force 13, the Navy 11, and the Marine Corp 5. They also have a web site: www.CoastGuardMuseum.org.
