The United States Coast Guard National Association of former Stewards and Steardmates, Inc. celebrated their 30th 4-Day Conference Reunion, July 4th through July 7, 2019 at the Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Ga.
A highlight of the conference was Sunday worship with the congregation at Butler Memorial Presbyterian Church located at 603 W Victory Dr. The organization was able to give God the praise for another successful year, their many accomplishments and keeping the legacy alive for those members who are no longer with us. We were reminded that through faith in God, we are able to take on challenges that come before us and be successful.
The organization is affiliated with the late Alex Haley, the author of “Roots”, which part of his story was filmed in Savannah. The following natives of Savannah are members of the U. S. Coast Guard National
Association of former Stewards and Steardmates, Inc.: Nathaniel Copeland, Roland Denegall, Jr. and Walter Ward.
