William Grant Schubert, confirmed by the Senate last week as U.S. Maritime Administrator, will be sworn into office today on board the S.S. CAPE KENNEDY, berthed at the Erato Street wharf in New Orleans, LA. Administration officers at Schubert’s level are customarily sworn into office in Washington. Schubert said, “I can think of no more appropriate place to be sworn in than on board a working ship in a busy American port.” Schubert is in New Orleans as part of the D-Day Museum’s celebrations marking the anniversary of the American entry into World War II. This year’s celebrations highlight the contribution of the Merchant Marine. The Maritime Administration’s responsibilities include strengthening and improving the U.S. Merchant Marine.
