DC3 Nathan Bruckenthal Ceremony April 18, 2014

In memory of Nate

Two members from the Coast Guard Auxiliary band performed ceremonial hymns that echoed through the air as family members took their seats and members of the Coast Guard filed in rows encircling the wooden podium. Against it rested a framed photo of late Petty Officer 3rd Class Nathan Bruckenthal, looking back at those in attendance at the ceremony.

Shipmate of the Week – BMC Foy Melendy

In less than a week’s time, Heron’s crew was responsible for five fisheries seizures, totaling more than 31,000 pounds of shrimp and netting a fair market value of more than $69,000. While it was truly a team effort for Heron, there was one shipmate the crew turned to for his expertise and guidance – Chief Petty Officer Foy Melendy.
