Senator Chris Coons pins the Silver Lifesaving Medal on Petty Officer 3rd Class Caleb Mabry during an award ceremony at Coast Guard Station Indian River, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Friday Feb. 24, 2017.
Mabry received the Silver Lifesaving Medal for heroic actions while off-duty and recovering from leg surgery in Cape Charles, Virginia June 21, 2015. Mabry and a good Samaritan entered the water and rescued a drowning teenager 50-yards offshore. Once onshore, Mabry persisted and re-entered the water looking for another teenager, who unfortunately succumbed to drowning. U.S. Coast Guard photo by Lt. Cmdr. Krystyn Pecora
