The Marlin’s president, David Samson, Marlin Ball Players, Billy the Marlin and members of the Marlins Mermaids dance team are slated to participate in the event. Coast Guard Rear Admiral David W. Kunkel, the commander of the Coast Guard’s Seventh District, will preside over the ceremony.

During the ceremony Lt. j.g. Donald Flusche, commanding officer of the Marlin, and Samson will unveil a special logo that will be carried aboard the Marlin’s flag box.
