Support Spotlight: Coast Guard in San Diego

  • Jennifer Crowley Fyke

With support from the Coast Guard Foundation, 450+ San Diego-based Coast Guard members are focused on building a strong community and maintaining critically important mission-readiness.

Across the sector, the Coast Guard Foundation outfitted new fitness and recreation spaces that promote the health and wellness of all who live and serve in the area.

Through each of these investments, the Coast Guard Foundation has empowered our members’ access to fitness and helped solidify the memories of our fallen shipmates. Your steadfast generosity has directly contributed to the Coast Guard’s mission readiness and retention. We are truly grateful.
