SCHUBERT SWORN IN AS MARAD ADMINISTRATOR
Capt. William G. Schubert was sworn in as Maritime Administrator on board the S.S. Cape Kennedy in New Orleans Thursday.
“I can think of no more appropriate place to be sworn in than on board a working ship in a busy American port,” said Schubert, who was confirmed by the Senate last week.
The S.S. Cape Kennedy is part of the U.S. Ready Reserve Force, a fleet of 76 ships maintained by the MarAd to provide sealift support to the armed forces.
During his time in New Orleans, Schubert will participate in the D-Day Museum’s celebrations marking the anniversary of America’s entry into World War II. This year’s celebrations highlight the contribution of the Merchant Marine'in the war.
