    Coast Guard marks major milestone in the construction of national museum

    NEW LONDON, Conn. — The Coast Guard will be hosting a formal ceremony to commemorate the construction of a National Coast Guard Museum in New London, Connecticut, Friday, August 19th at 2:00 p.m.

    WHO: Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Rep. Joe Courtney, Adm. Linda Fagan, Commandant of the Coast Guard, and local government officials.

    WHAT: Principle speakers will give remarks during a formal “keel-laying” ceremony to commemorate the construction of a National Coast Guard Museum that will memorialize over 230 years of service into one central location to honor the legacy and heritage of the world’s greatest Coast Guard. The Coast Guard Band, silent drill team and operational assets will also be part of the event.

    WHERE: On the City Pier, New London Conn.

    WHEN: At 2:00 p.m. Friday, August 19th.

    WHY: A longstanding tradition in the shipbuilding industry, a “keel-laying” celebrates the laying down of a ship’s keel, marking the start of its construction. Although modern shipbuilding techniques have evolved and the ceremony is now properly called a “keel authentication”, the Coast Guard is drawing from the traditions and nomenclature of old when inaugurating the building of the nation’s first and only National Coast Guard Museum.

    RSVP: Any media outlets interested in covering this event should send an email to cga-public-affairs@uscga.edu by noon Thursday, Aug. 18.
