This post is to announce the Station Niagara Loss of Crewmen Memorial Design Contest.
This contest is being sponsored by Eastern Great Lakes CPOA.

Back ground info: On March 24, 2001 Station Niagara lost 2 of their crew in an unfortunate accident. Due to this accident and loss of life, changes were put in place that changed the small boat community forever. I will post articles and the "Final Action Message" that tells the story and how it changed the way the Coast Guard does business.

A Memorial was erected back in March 2011 and Officially Commemorated in a Ceremony on 23 March 2011, but a couple years back a storm and rising water levels in lake Ontario has destroyed it and made it necessary to move the location of the memorial. I have attached pictures of the old Memorial and Pictures of the new location.

The Eastern Great Lakes Chapter of the CPOA is sponsoring a Design the Memorial contest. We have a lot of talented people out there that could come up with a great design, this is to include all members in the Sector Buffalo AOR (A-Bay to Lorain). The winning design will receive a $200.00 gift card and have their name on the memorial as "designed by".

Now the good stuff-
Details for the design: We have the Bell and both of the plaques that you see in pictures: Memorial 1 & 2. The size of the New Location you have to work with in the pictures is 18'W x 38'.
Please have all designed submitted by 01 July 2020.
Please help us memorialize this event that changed the Coast Guard.
If you have any questions on the location and items do not hesitate to contact Herb Gierschke
Submissions can be E-mailed to [email protected]

Regardless if temporary or permanent, the support and concern from the community has been astounding, and very much appreciated.
Thank you, truly, thank you to our community.

GUIDANCE TO CPOA CHAPTERS REGARDING TEMPORARY REOPENING OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT:

Although we have received terrific news today about the temporary reopening of the federal government, please continue all resource allocation that is currently in place. Next week, our Team Coast Guard members will be receiving back pay, but may have been significantly impacted financially by the pay lapse and may need continued resource support. Beyond next week's pay allocation, I recommend that resources not be completely disbanded until CG appropriations are in place and the risk of pay lapse is resolved. Thank you for all that you do...we couldn't be more proud of how you all quickly stood up!

Another round of calls went out today trying to identify Chapters & Branches that can help the Coast Guard Foundation disseminate $250,000 in pre-loaded Visa Cards to families in need. We used our list from Friday and made many more contacts today. I'm sure we may have missed some, and for that, we apologize in advance. All grievances should be directed to Master Chief Mark Allen ;-)

Great news for our local chapter

https://www.facebook.com/357771687621081/posts/2149469815117917/

We set up a Crisis Action Center (CAC) at our National Office today. Our goal was to get 8,000 Omaha Steaks meals (28 pallets) in the best hands to distribute to families in need. It was great talking to many of our Chapter and Branch reps. This has never happened and we're all in unchartered waters but we know you all are doing AMAZING things and are so proud how quickly you stood up to help our own!

The community outreach is humbling and very appreciated. Many are overwhelmed and doing their best to manage what's going on...much like drinking from a fire-hose. We'll get through this, and will be stronger for it.

Chiefs are the very backbone of the Coast Guard. It has been my privilege to serve with some of the finest Chiefs the USCG has and many of my crewmates have risen to the rank since I retired. This is an elite group that deserves our thanks, our support and our prayers.
One of the many bases I grew up at.
