Coast Guard Commander inducted into Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Alumni Hall of Fame

New York – U.S. Coast Guard Cmdr. Daniel J. Travers was inducted into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Alumni Hall of Fame at a ceremony at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan, Wednesday evening.

Travers, of Marlborough, Mass., is the first ever inductee from the U.S. Coast Guard.

Travers joined the Marlborough Boys Club in 1975 at age 8 where he participated in the Torch Club and Keystone Club, serving as the latter’s president. His greatest club honor came in 1984 when he was named Massachusetts Youth of the Year.

“Clearly, the Club helped me become the person I am today – a leader in the Coast Guard and my community,” said Travers, commanding officer of Coast Guard Air Station Detroit.

Travers was selected because of his membership as youth, continued work with the clubs today, and his success as a Coast Guard leader.
