Last week, the Coast Guard Foundation presented the Guardian of the Heartland award to the flight crews who took part in the search and rescue mission following the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig one year ago today. The aircrews were honored with tributes from U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu, Vice Adm. Sally Brice-O’Hara and Rear Adm. Mary Landry, Coast Guard 8th District commander.
