The United States Coast Guard is thanking individuals from Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay businesses Wednesday for their support with a ride on the USCG Cutter Mobile Bay. Formed in 1972, the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) was established to promote the cooperation between local businesses and their National Guard and Reserve employees. Mark Gill from the United States Coast Guard says especially in a small city like Sturgeon Bay, local support is crucial.
Gill says the ESGR members provide a great service to National Guard and Reserve members who want to support their local community but also need a job to earn a living. The Mobile Bay will leave its dock mid-morning and return a few hours later with their guests, so the United States Coast Guard is reminding recreational users of the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal to plan their activities carefully.
