Devotion to duty: CAPT Ken Megan conducts final band performance

Over the weekend, Capt. Ken Megan conducted his final concert before heading into retirement. The Coast Guard Academy’s Leamy Hall was packed with appreciative fans and the band shared the stage with dozens of former band members – myself included. Such devotion by both audience and colleagues is testament to his stellar career and the huge impact he has had on our band and the U.S. Coast Guard.
