Welcome to Connecticut’s Coast Guard Summer!
Governor Dannel P. Malloy has officially designated the summer of 2015 as “Connecticut’s Coast Guard Summer” in celebration of the 225th anniversary of the founding of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and the USCG Academy’s 100 years at its current location in New London. As part of Connecticut’s Coast Guard Summer, which will run from June through September, 2015, several major event organizers in New London will choose themes to commemorate USCG for its service to the region and nation.
“The longtime presence of the U.S. Coast Guard in New London not only represents our state’s rich maritime heritage but has also led to a strong partnership with the state that has driven economic development, tourism and industry for the region,” said Governor Malloy. “We are proud that the academy and our newest national landmark – the National Coast Guard Museum – call Connecticut home and chose the summer of 2015 to celebrate that partnership while honoring the important role the men and women of the Coast Guard have played throughout our country’s history.”
