Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that he is designating the summer of 2015 as Connecticut's Coast Guard Summer in celebration of the 225th anniversary of the founding of the United States Coast Guard (USCG), the USCG Academy's 100 years at its current location in New London, and the City of New Londonís anticipated recognition as an official Coast Guard City.

As part of Connecticut's Coast Guard Summer, which will run from July 10 through September 12, 2015, several major event organizers in New London will choose themes to commemorate USCG for its service to the region and nation.

"The longtime presence of the U.S. Coast Guard in New London not only represents our state's rich maritime heritage but has also led to a strong partnership with the state that has driven economic development, tourism and industry for the region," said Governor Malloy. "We are proud that the academy and our newest national landmark -- the National Coast Guard Museum -- call Connecticut home and chose the summer of 2015 to celebrate that partnership while honoring the important role the men and women of the Coast Guard have played throughout our country's history."
