We are honoring the Coast Guard's work in Alaska with some very special guests on August 13 in Anchorage.
Geraldo Rivera, world-class sailor and Fox News Senior Correspondent, and Sig Hansen, Captain of the F/V Northwestern and star of the Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch" will join us to pay tribute to those who serve in the great state of Alaska, an area known for challenging weather conditions that make serving there a difficult deployment.

We are working on the program for the evening that will highlight the bravery and heroism of the Coast Guard's 17th district and we'll share those details soon.
