NEW ORLEANS The Coast Guard attended the mayoral welcome for the start of NOLA Navy Week, Wednesday, at Gallier Hall in downtown.

Both commanders of Coast Guard Atlantic Area and the Eighth Coast Guard District along with the commanding officer of the Coast Guard Barque Eagle attended with other commanding officers of the U.S. Navy and various foreign navies.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Jacqueline Brechtel Clarkson, president of the New Orleans City Council, presented awards to the commanding officers of each of the ships participating in the Bicentennial Commemoration of the War of 1812.

“We are delighted to be here with the Coast Guard and the city of New Orleans for the celebration of the Bicentennial Commemoration of the War of 1812,” said Vice Adm. Robert Parker, commander of Coast Guard Atlantic Area. “Just like the Navy and the other sea services, we learned a lot during that conflict, as we have great relevance to our national defense, especially the port security missions that ramped up after September 11.”
