  At a presentation earlier today the Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to the education and welfare of all Coast Guard members and their families presented a $10,000 gift to Coast Guard Station Fort Pierce, Fort Pierce, Florida.

Mr. David Dyer, also a Coast Guard Foundation board member, was joined at the acknowledgement by his wife Harriett Dyer, and children John, Dyer, and Will and Tatiana Dyer.  “This generous gift from Dyer Chevrolet will make a real difference for Coast Guard members and their families stationed here at this busy Coast Guard station,” said Overcast. “We’re honored to support those who so selflessly serve our country and put their lives on the line so others may live.” The USCG Commanding Officer of Station Fort Pierce, Chief Warranty Officer Randy Ryan, accepted the gift from the Coast Guard Foundation
