Glacier Society Present Plaque to Senator Joseph Lieberman

Ben Koether and Steve Johnson present a plaque in appreciation to Senator Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn. for his sponsorship, together with Senator Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., of the legislation which deeded USS/USCGC Glacier to The Glacier Society. 

Through their efforts along with Congressman Christopher Shays of CT, the 2001 Defense Authorization Bill included a provision authorizing the Secretary of Transportation to transfer title of the former USS Glacier to the Glacier Society. President Clinton signed the legislation in October 2000.
