One of the Coast Guard Foundation's most solemn missions is to provide comfort to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one in the line of duty. When a family or Coast Guard unit is faced with the unthinkable, the Foundation steps in and provides immediate financial relief, whether it's a care package, or paying for an airline ticket for a family member to attend her loved one's memorial service. This video tells the story of Lisa Moletzsky and Audrey Gill, two people who the Coast Guard Foundation have helped in times of need.

Coast Guard Response to the Haiti Earthquake
The Coast Guard was first to respond in an offcial capacity to the devestating earthquake that wracked Haiti in January 2010. The Coast Guard set up supply lines, administered crucial medical aid and established order to the chaos. In 2010, the Coast Guard Foundation honored those units that responded to the earthquake.
