My amazing, wonderful, gorgeous fiance (Captain Scott) and the crew of the Alaska Warrior were honored this morning at City Hall by the Coast Guard for their efforts in rescuing 22 of the 47 crewmembers on the Ranger. The Ranger sank on Easter morning 2008, in the icy, unforgiving waters of the Bering Sea. It was a truly sad day for all of us here in Unalaska....one of the deceased being a dear friend....David Silveira, may you Rest In Peace.
The mayor said a few words, Discovery Channel was there, as well as Channel 8 and the local radio station. The Coast Guard presented the award, then we all headed to the Memorial Park for photos at the Fisherman's Memorial...it was very emotional.
If I am unable to post photos, CB (Dutch Harbor Dirt) will be posting some photos of the event hopefully some time today.
