Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman received the Department of Homeland Security’s Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest honor the department can award to a civilian.

Department Secretary Janet Napolitano was joined by former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff in presenting the honor.   Each spoke of the Senator’s legacy creating, supporting, and improving the department.

“I am deeply honored to receive this recognition from Secretary Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security,” said Lieberman. “For the past eleven years, DHS has been instrumental in keeping America safe.  However there is no destination point in homeland security and we can always do better. I am proud to have played a role in the creation of the DHS, and I will surely miss working side by side with the fine members of the homeland security community.

“I am confident that my successors will ensure that the department continues, and improves upon, its mission.”

Sunrise in Noank,” a stunning photo by Steven Spellman, sets a tone of awakening…and brings to mind that Steven and I were classmates at Stonington High, just yesterday! Our good Senator who is now retiring, Joe Lieberman, received stellar recognition from the Department of Homeland Security. The Distinguished Service Medal is their highest honor and reflects his role in originating the department; so cast a watchful eye on page 5.

Our own tall ship, the Coast Guard’s Eagle, has a new lease on her 77-year life, courtesy of a three-month maintenance effort by the Submarine Base and the Coast Guard. The dockside work at the base is her longest maintenance period there in some 20 years. Sail on to page 5 see her berthed at Fort Trumbull.
