CPOA/CGEA National Initiative Alert!!! PLEASE SHARE ON CHAPTER/BRANCH/PERSONAL PAGES!!

Mrs. Lois Bouton, affectionately known as "The Coast Guard Lady," was not only a member of the Coast Guard, but has also written over 40,000 letters to the men and women of the Coast Guard, to encourage them and to celebrate their Coast Guard membership/accompishments. This year she is turning 100 and we want to give an overwhelming salute to her service in and for the Coast Guard!

Here's our call to action:

The CPOA and CGEA National Officers would like our membership to honor the dedication of Mrs. Bouton by collecting and sending 100th birthday cards and personal letters to our National Office, to be presented to her at her 100th Birthday Celebration in September. We would like for Chapters/Branches to solicit their membership for individual and/or collaborative mailings. We ask that all cards and letters be received at our office NLT 15AUG19. The cards and letters will be placed in a custom box, created by Chief Jenn Collins, of the Southeastern Connecticut Chapter. Thank you, Chief, for donating your time and effort to this worthy endeavor!

Please send all mailings to:

U. S. Coast Guard CPOA
C/o The Coast Guard Lady
5520-G Hempstead Way
Springfield, VA 22151

Thank you, in advance, for honoring our dear friend and shipmate!

From the CGEA National President:

We have, officially, avoided further government shutdown during this fiscal year. We can all take a collective breath and know that we provided support for those affected in every unit/community that our association exists within. Many of our branches drove hours to extend support to those who did not have an existing CGEA branch or CPOA chapter near them. We gained new members and branches, individuals and groups that could see the validity of our organization, and wanted to help stand in the gap of need created by the pay lapse. We worked long hours in our food pantries and baby pantries, all while many of us were affected by the pay lapse, but committed to our association's missions.

Thank you, all, for your hard work and steadfast dedication to our Team Coast Guard members and others affected by the partial government shutdown. You have shown that this association is ready, relevant, and responsive to any undertaking. I believe I echo the feelings of the other CGEA board members, in saying that we could not be more proud to be the leaders of this association!

Many of our branches/chapters have remaining donations in the form of food, baby items. etc. It is our hope that those resources be allocated to community organizations that provide services to those in need. If we, as your National Officers, can provide any assistance to you in allocating your donations, please contact us at [email protected].

Bravo Zulu Shipmates!

Casey Lawrence
CGEA National President
