The crewmen of the tug Tuxedni are receiving a prestigious Coast Guard award for their role in saving the lives of the fishermen from the fishing vessel Heritage when it sank in January 2012.

The tug Tuxedni responded to the Heritage’s distress signal and rescued five crewmen from a life raft. A Coast Guard helicopter rescued two other crewmen from Alitak Bay after the Heritage sank.
