Coast Guard Diversity Champion

Air Station Borinquen

                                            

Congratulations to Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen, our Diversity Champion!  The Diversity Champion distinction is bestowed upon individuals or units who have made significant contributions in support of the Commandant's Diversity Strategic Plan and OPTASK Diversity.

The Chapel at Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen hosted a youth group on their spring break music tour from Georgia-Cumberland Academy in Calhoun, Georgia.  After their performance in the unit's chapel during Sunday service, they visited the hangar to get a tour of the facilities we take so much pride in.

To personally thank the men and women of Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen, the group spontaneously performed again, this time to the weekend maintenance crew performing critical helicopter maintenance.

Additionally, Air Station Borinquen hosted the Ramey Air Force Base Historical Association (RAFBHA) biennial reunion.  The Ramey Air Force Base Historical Association (RAFBHA) is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization with the one and only mission of keeping the history of Ramey AFB alive.  The Association was created by the men, women, and families that were stationed at Ramey Air Force Base during the Cold War years.  On 1997, the RAFBHA was officially established as a nonprofit and has been growing ever since.  Thousands of airmen and women passed thru Ramey AFB during its operational history.  The reunion included a welcome reception, the Borinquen Field/Ramey Air Force Base Museum ribbon cutting ceremony, an open house at Air Station Borinquen, a remembrance at the local General Ramey Memorial, a formal banquet/auction, an airport Fly-In and several luncheons.  Overall, our efforts impacted 60 RAFBHA members, 200 Police Athletic Youth Club members, all members of Air Station Borinquen, and over 2,000 attendees at the Fly-In from throughout the Ramey community.

Air Station Borinquen's leadership, mentorship, and devotion to duty are exemplary and serve as a great example of the positive impact a unit can have on their unit and the community.  As a direct result of your efforts and outreach, the Coast Guard is making strides toward achieving the vision set out in the Diversity Strategic Plan.  Thank you for your work in championing diversity!
