CLEARWATER, Fla., Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Coast Guard Personnel Enjoy Free BBQ Lunch during Recent Government
Air Ambulance Worldwide and Sonny's BBQ joined forces during the recent government shutdown to show their appreciation to the men and women of U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater. Continuing to serve their country without pay during the 35-day shutdown, hundreds of Coast Guard personnel were treated to complimentary Sonny's BBQ food and drinks during a special event organized by Air Ambulance Worldwide.
Additionally, Air Ambulance Worldwide volunteers gathered hundreds of non-perishable food items to replenish the food stores on the base, which were closed during the shutdown. This helped Coast Guard personnel stay fed while continuing to provide life-saving services to the public during the shutdown.
"We would like to thank Sonny's BBQ for their invaluable contribution to this effort," Air Ambulance Worldwide CEO, Mark Jones said. "We would also like to thank our Coast Guard neighbors for their continued service and selfless dedication to public safety."
Air Station Clearwater is the largest and busiest air station in the Coast Guard. In addition to the local area, its area of operations includes the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean basin and the Bahamas. The station constantly maintains deployed H-60s for Operations Bahamas, Turks and Caicos (OPBAT), a joint DEA, Coast Guard and Bahamian Turks and Caicos anti-drug and migrant smuggling operation in the Bahamas. The station also has C-130s deployed in support of Joint Interagency Task Force (JIATF) operations in the Caribbean. This is done while simultaneously maintaining a constant Bravo Zero Search and Rescue response at home in Florida.
