Actually, for Civilians the dress code for the Webber Commissioning was "Business Attire". I read that there are plans for 56 of these type vessels, all to be named after enlisted heroes or Gold Medal Life Saver Medal recipients.

I was asked to have the CG36500 on hand at Nantucket for Sheila's award ceremony recently. There was not enough time to make all the arrangements needed to transport a slow boat from Rock Harbor to Nantucket, and return.
At the commissioning of the USCGC Bernard C. Webber WPC 1101, in Miami some years ago, all invitees were to wear a suit and tie , a dress, or suitable "working attire". Stu Smith and Sheila Lucey show up in Bermuda shorts. At the time, I thought it was disrespectful of them. I still do.

Wayne, I remember Sheila Lucey well. I was a crewman on the Grey Lady out of Hyannis Harbor about the time she retired. I believe she retired with the rank of Senior Chief. She had just gotten the job as assistant Harbormaster on the island and we regularly ferried her over. She was always pleasant and quite gregarious. I believe she was somewhat legendary in her career such as the case of retired Master Chief Jack Downey. Glad to see she is doing well over there still.
