Debris surrounds one of the buildings that sustained major damage at Sector Field Office Galveston following Hurricane Ike.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Dec. 13, 2010, to commemorate the opening of new Sector Field Office Galveston Multi-Mission Building.  In 2008, SFO Galveston was severely damaged by Hurricane Ike.  After more than two years,  the men and women stationed at SFO Galveston and the units it supports have a new building to work in, which is proof of the steady re-growth on the island.

Rear Adm. Mary Landry, commander of the Eighth Coast Guard District, will officiate the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“The construction of this new building is a symbol of renewal more than two years after Hurricane Ike devastated the base,” said Cmdr. Luis Sandoval, commanding officer of Sector Field Office Galveston.  “We are proud to cut this ribbon and officially open the building, which is offering a fresh start for all the Coast Guardsmen stationed at SFO,” he said.
