Fallen Heroes: Foundation providing assistance to families, shipmates

  • Coast Guard Foundation

Sadly, last week our Fallen Heroes Fund was activated following the deaths of two U.S. Coast Guard members in unrelated incidents. Seaman Ethan M. Kelch of the Coast Guard Cutter Douglas Munro on Jan. 27, and Chief Warrant Officer Michael L. Kozloski of the Coast Guard Cutter Hickory on Jan. 31.

The Coast Guard Foundation is working closely with the U.S. Coast Guard to coordinate and provide support to the families and shipmates of both during this difficult time.
