Andrew and I attended the Coast Guard Foundation Inaugural Houston Awards dinner last Friday. We were so honored to be asked to attend! We really enjoyed the event and met some of Houston's finest people!
They had asked Andrew to give a safety briefing/speech before the dinner really began! He looked so handsome up there on the stage. I was also a recipient of the Coast Guard Foundation Spouse Scholarship last year so it was very interesting to really see how the money is raised and who is involved in making this possible for the Coast Guard.
Admiral Paul F. Zukunft, Commandant of the Coast Guard and former Texas Governor Rick Perry attended and share their remarks. The hotel was decorated absolutely flawlessly. The food was amazing and most importantly we were at a table with great people!
During the event, the Coast Guard Foundation presented an award to a Houston-based Coast Guard unit for heroics and mission excellence. The Foundation also presented its Guardian Award to ExxonMobil. Accepting the award was Rex W. Tillerson, chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil.
It was a great night in Houston with my handsome Ensign! :)
