Transatlantic Cooperation Among Councils Brings Spanish Naval Academy Cadet to NYC


USCG Academy 1C Cadet Gabe Zogby and Alferez de Fragata Julián Garcia Dominguez of the Spanish Navy rode with USCG Station New York during a recent educational exchange visit to NYC.
 

In addition to this summer’s youth-centered work with Manhattan Yacht Club, the New York Council also partnered recently with the Madrid and National Capital Councils of the Navy League to host a newly commissioned Spanish Naval Officer on an educational exchange visit to the United States. The Madrid Council annually provides the top graduate from the Spanish Naval Academy with a trip to the States, and the New York Council was thrilled to participate in this program for the first time.

Council staff, President Charles Blaich and a few members were fortunate to meet Alferez de Fragata (equivalent of LTJG) Julián Garcia Dominguez and learn more about the Spanish Navy. For the New York portion of his visit, Julián got a close-up view of U.S. Coast Guard operations at Sector New York and Station New York, and got to experience the city along with a visiting 1C Coast Guard Academy cadet, Gabe Zogby. Madrid Council President Luis San Miguel and Jim McManamon of the National Capital Council were outstanding partners in coordinating the visit and the New York Council hopes to make this an annual event.
