Maryland Coast Guard Station Wins Award

Wednesday, March 28, 2007
The crew of Coast Guard Station Oxford, Md., recieved the Sumner I. Kimball Award for superior readiness Tuesday. Coast Guard Captains Neil Buschman, Fifth District chief of staff, and Brian D. Kelley, commander of Sector Baltimore, presided over the ceremony. The Sumner I. Kimball Award recognizes excellence in crew proficiency, boat and personal protective equipment condition and compliance with established training documentation requirements, and is awarded to the top 10 percent of units throughout the Coast Guard. The Kimball Award selection is the result of many hours of hard work and attention to detail by the crew. "It's an honor for the crew of a small Coast Guard station to receive such a difficult-to-achieve national award. The hard work and dedication that it takes to reach this level is amazing," said Chief Petty Officer John N. Gallagher, Station Oxford's officer-in-charge. The award is named for Sumner I. Kimball, a general superintendent of the U.S. Life Saving Service, a predecessor agency of the Coast Guard. It reflects the Coast Guard's continued commitment to Kimball's high standards.
