Three of the newest Lone Sailor Award recipients were honored last week at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The Bridges family, Lloyd, Beau and Jeff, are probably best known for their distinguished careers in Hollywood including their acting, producing and directing credits. But what might not be as well known is all three are Coast Guard veterans. The Bridges family received the award for distinguishing themselves by drawing upon their military experience to become successful in their subsequent careers and lives, while exemplifying the core values of the sea services.
In a recent interview at the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., Beau Bridges shared with the Coast Guard Compass his experiences while in the Coast Guard and how the Coast Guard’s core values of Honor, Respect and Devotion to Duty have reflected in his civilian life.
